    The Strix and Apex are much better for this
    I hope an error in the specifications, have more ASMedia ports on the high-end X299 is just a joke
    OK I see what you mean. The only issue I every had was using my Corsair K95 with those ports on my RIVE. Did the 2 USB 2 ports. Other things have worked ok in those ports though. What other issues were you seeing?

If you look at page 2-17 it appears to list 4 intel USB 3.1 ports on the back panel for ports 3, 4, 5, 6. Ports 5 and 6 double as the Keybot and Flashback ports. I have been seeing specks of 2 USB 2.0 ports (on Newegg business) but the only USB 2 connector I see is the 1 internal one on the motherboard . Perhaps some sites are misreporting this.

    I am not sure what this means: 1 x USB 2.0 connector support additional 2 USB 2.0 ports [one connector via ROG_EXT header]? One internal USB port is there and you can add others with the ROG_EXT header? Is there special cable you but for this somewhere?
    Umm, I do not see the "specks of 2 USB 2.0 ports" on neweggbusiness that you are seeing. On https://www.neweggbusiness.com/produ...=9b-13-119-017 , there is one wrong photo that actually shows the rear I/O panel for the X399 Zenith Extreme, not the X299 Rampage VI Extreme. The erroneous photo is the one showing the two shark-fin WiFi antennas next to the rear I/O panel:

    https://images10.newegg.com/ProductI...19-017-V11.jpg

    But even that photo for the X399 Zenith Extreme's rear I/O does not show USB 2.0 ports. Other than the one wrong photo, the other ten photos and all the specs on the neweggbusiness listing are correct. I don't know if Newegg posted the wrong photo or if Asus accidentally bundled the wrong X399 Zenith Extreme photo for Newegg to use, but that needs to be fixed.

    And neweggbusiness has the correct photos and specs for the Apex are correct, with two rear USB 2.0 ports: https://www.neweggbusiness.com/produ...=9b-13-119-015

    So for a quick glance at what differentiates the rear I/O panels, the X299 Extreme has two LAN ports, the X299 Apex has two black USB 2.0 ports, and the X399 Zenith Extreme has vent slits on the rear and top I/O panels.

    For the ROG_EXT question, there is only one internal USB 2.0 connector. The confusing comment of "one connector via ROG_EXT" just means that you can use that USB 2.0 connector as part of a ROG_EXT connection. The ROG_EXT connection is for Asus products like the OC Panel and Front Base. AFAIK, Asus does not make a USB 2.0 expander/replicator card that plugs into either a ROG_EXT connector or USB 2.0 connector. I have an extra MSI "USB Xpander" card that uses a USB 2.0 header and Molex connection and expands that to four USB 2.0 headers and I may use one with the RVIE. The ROG_EXT connector is basically a standard 9-pin USB 2.0 header (labeled on the RVIE mobo as "USB1314") with a separate 8-pin Asus-proprietary ROG_EXT header to the left of it. So the ROG_EXT connector is a bit like the SATA Express port. Just like you can use the USB 2.0 connector separate from a ROG_EXT connection, you can use the SATA Express port as a regular SATA port. If you use the single USB 2.0 port on the RVIE, you can no longer plug a ROG_EXT device in, and vice versa.

    And, yes, I too wish that the RVIE had a second USB 2.0 internal header, instead of just one, especially since the RVIE is optimized for water cooling loops and I will be ordering the EKWB RVIE monoblock when they release it three to five weeks from now. But it is what it is...

    The main reason that the Extreme costs almost exactly 50% more than the Apex is because of its fancy NCVM Non-Conductive Vacuum-Metallized coating on the I/O and PCIe slot areas, which is a form of vacuum electroplating. The Apex does have two rear USB 2.0 ports and two internal USB 2.0 headers. I think Asus cut some corners on the RVIE, such as only one internal/external USB 2.0, to keep costs down. I am going to use my RVIE for video/photo/audio editing, with an i9-7900X and either a single-fan GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1070. The little single-fan GTX 1050 Ti would show off more of the RGB effects on the NCVM plating, but my GTX 1070 would give better CUDA hardware acceleration in Adobe Premiere. But if I was going to use this for gaming with dual-GPU SLI, I would probably buy the Apex instead because two big GTX 1080 Ti cards would cover up most of the RGB lighting around the PCIe slot area that you are paying a high premium for.

    Thank you that helps. I guess I meant headers. Sorry I meant I looked at Tom't Hardware (too many web pages open atm):
    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/asu...rds,35178.html

    So I guess Tom's site is incorrect. Perhaps they were interpreting things the way I was given how it was labeled. OK, so I will buy a USB 2 expander of sorts. Any recommendations. The NZXT one looks good.

    Thanks
    Doesn't really matter as the AIO header is just a fan header with Q_Fan control disabled by default. Either use that or configure any fan header the same way.

    Tom's listing of:
    3 x USB 3.1 Gen-2
    12 x USB 3.1 Gen-1
    2 x USB 2.0

    is correct, but it is very vague because it actually refers to the total number of actual achievable connections.

    So...

    3 x USB 3.1 Gen-2 means... 3 Gen-2 connectors (1 Type-C and 1 Type-A rear I/O, and 1 internal header)
    12 x USB 3.1 Gen-1 means... 8 Gen-1 rear I/O connectors, 4 Gen-1 front-panel connections via 2 internal Gen-1 headers
    2 x USB 2.0 means... 1 internal USB 2.0 header, that may be used for 2 USB 2.0 front-panel ports, and zero rear I/O USB 2.0 connections.

    The NZXT USB 2.0 expander is good. I previously bought two MSI Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium mobos, one of which still remains my gaming rig with an i7-7700K and two GTX 1080 Ti, and they include a 1-expanded-to-4 USB 2.0 Xpander card. So I have one spare that I will use with the RVIE.

    This is the part that is confusing. "2 internal USB 2 connections via 1 USB 2.0 header"|. What does that mean? if there is one connector there how can I get 2 (other than use something like the expander we discussed?

    Edit: ok it just dawned on me that one header is capable of only supporting 2 connections? Is that accurate? I was thinking 2 usb headers.

    Sorry! I was tripping over my own count-the-connections math. I updated my post to mean:

    2 x USB 2.0 means... 1 internal USB 2.0 header, that may be used for 2 USB 2.0 front-panel ports, and zero rear I/O USB 2.0 connections.

    So to emphasize again, there is only 1 internal USB 2.0 header and zero rear USB 2.0 ports on the Extreme. The Apex has two internal USB 2.0 headers and two rear USB 2.0 ports.

    @Raja, you said it'd be possible to configure the DIMM.2 to CPU or Chipset. Will it be possible to boot the M.2 SSD via the CPU? Or is it just possible to boot via chipset? Referring to this post of you: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...975#post665975

    Lol. Part of the reason why this is important to me is that I have a Corsair 900D with 4 USB 2.0 ports on front and only 2 USB 3/.1 ports. If I simply plug in the one header for the front panel, only 2 of the 4 ports will work. So if I add the NZXT USB 2 expander then I can have up to 3 USB headers plugged in plus 2 external connections internally (for things like the Hue +). If I want external connectors in the back I will need to add a small expansion card with the right ports. I will only need to do that if my keyboard will not function properly with the USB ports in the back (it would look ugly being plugged in up front all the time). I know USB 2 is a thing of the past but I still have some things that rely on it so....

    I am also hoping the issues with the Asmedia USB 3/3.1connections are not an issue anymore as they had in the past for me.

    I wish Corsair would offer a replacement module to update the connections up front.
