Asus Maximus IX Formula internal USB 2.0 connectors?

Hi, I can't find the two USB 2.0 headers locations on the 'Maximus IX Formula'. I've found one that shares space with the 'ROG_EXT' connections but I'm unsure where the second one is . . . ?

  1. Read the manual
  2. I have read the manual and it makes nothing clear. It reads as follows:

    "1 x USB 2.0 port(USB1314) at mid-board shares pins with ROG extension (ROG_EXT) port."

    I have used the set of pins (9 pin header) to the right but can't see the other location in the manual or with any certainty on the mobo, therefore, as I asked in the original post: Where are both USB 2.0 headers located?
  3. Looks like it's the one beside USB1314

    But you can only have one or the other. The rog ext, or 2 USB 2 ports. But not both. Even tho the rog ext header has 8 pins, there is no 9th pin for USB 2

    Just got the same mobo. Looks like there's only 1 USB 2 header and that's the one next to the ROG extension header. I've just bought an NZXT internal usb expander. Why the heck is there only 1 USB 2 header in a motherboard of this price!?

    Yeah, I've had to use the NZXT hub as one header is just not enough in any scenario, especially for a board this expensive . . . unless we're missing something?
  6. Hi I'm having the same problem. I thought this board had 2 USB2.0 headers. But the other 9pin header on the right has 4pins on top and 5pins on the bottom which makes it impossible to fit a USB2.0 connector in there. And the manual says nothing about it either.

  7. Same here. Just got my new rig set up, go to plug in the USB portion of my Corsaid 115 liquid cooler and I'm not finding anywhere to put it on my Maximus IX Code.
  8. Best answer
    rog ext on right side and usb 1314 are 2.0 headers so those are 2 usb headers
  9. yep, seems it works plugged into the ROG EXT pins right next to the 1314 pins it wouldn't work on.
  10. There is only one USB2.0 header good for 2 usb device.
    I have to extract the 4 little pin from then connector of my corsair H80i v2 USB cable too merge them on the same connector from my PSU USB corsair link. so now i can connect my water cooling and the PSU corsair link on the USB1314 9pins.
    Can someone tell me if those 8 pins(ROG EXT) on the left of the USB1314 9 pins can be use as usb2.0 header?

    tks
