As the title states people, I'm really struggling to acquire 1 x 18-1 pin ROG_EXT cable. Its sending me around the bend.

Asus is no longer the company it was. Ive emailed them and had nothing back over the last two years. The people I've spoken to simply had no idea what I was talking about.

Can anyone give me a heads up on how I could aquire another cable. Ebay do not have any for sale. google brings up nothing and the cable shops ive tried had no idea.

looking for some help. I really need this cable before I can move a pc on. Thanks in advance:toast:

I have no answer to that. This is just an idea, feel free to ignore it. ;)

If you've been looking for that long, I think you should consider making that cable by yourself. Do this at your own risk, and check the connections using a multimeter before connecting.

There's a pinout available, and it seems like it uses one regular USB (2x10) header, and one 2x8 header but I think two 2x10 headers would work just as well if there's room for it on the board.

In the other end there's a 2x20 pin female, pretty much the same as used for USB 3.0 headers. Start with two USB internal extension cables, and move the pin receptacles one by one by pressing the metal tab and pull the wire in question gently. Remove all pin receptacles in the USB 3.0 connector and put the other wires in the right place according to the pinout. If the connectors differs too much you might have to solder instead.

Ebay is one place to look, two cables like this (get long enough),

put together/soldererd to this 20 pin female (remove the rest).

I've searched for an ROG_EXT cable, it was the last link on the first page (at least for me).
