Make Future Motherboard Feature Suggestions Here!

Hi all,

ASUS ROG is requesting our best suggestions for ROG product improvements. As a moderator I won’t have the ability to implement your suggestions but I will be picking some of the best to highlight for the ROG team so they know what matters to us, the community.

Some guidelines for this thread:
1) Keep it positive and constructive. In most of the forum I try to allow you all to express your thoughts freely (within reason). This thread has the express purpose of generating constructive suggestions so I will be moderating this thread and deleting posts that do not contribute to that goal.
2) Keep it concise and on topic. Some minor discussion regarding a specific suggestion is welcome but if you would like to have a longer conversation I ask you start an additional thread and link it in your post here. You can also request a moderator move your posts if you have need.
3) Try for realistic ideas that appeal broadly to gamers. A small improvement on an existing ROG product is much more likely to get chosen than an entirely new product that only matters to a small number of people.
4) Support your favorites! You don’t have to come up with a suggestion to help. If you see something you like, quote it and say so! More support for an idea improves its chances.

EDIT:
I’ve updated the titles for these feedback threads to reflect that this is primarily for *future* products. Sorry for the lack of clarity. While there is a chance some ideas could be implemented via software updates it’s most likely any suggestions would be rolled into new products.
Also, these threads are not for issue reporting and such posts won’t reach the right people. Please post issues in the ROG Care > Hardware & Software Support section. Or contact ASUS support via phone or email for immediate assistance.

I believe that Creators that are also gaming are a bit "left-aside" by ASUS. Furthermore, the need for less Gaming-Oriented Aesthetics was certified by the huge acceptance of the ProArt Series GPUs. Adding the huge "welcome" to the Prime AP201 cases that where widely used for "Creators" builds, the urge to widen the ProArt series products with keyboards, mice, mouse pads, fans, AIO liquid coolers and soundbars/headsets is more than welcome by us creators.

Fellow content creators and workstation users that would prefer a widen ProArt series products, please share your thoughts below and it would be most appreciated if you could also share design ideas to make our voice heard!

Adding a fast mockup, just to make my idea visible

The only real issue I have is the fan profiles, the built in profiles really don't make much sense, the silent isn't really silent and the standard is far more aggressive than a standard profile should be. If you disagree about the built in profiles that's fine but at least allow a manual profile to be copied to the other fans.

Every time I update my BIOS I have to go and set my fans to 40% PWM and because this is the manual profile I can't say to copy to the rest I have to go to each fan and them them in this manner. There has to be a better way.

Is this before or after you've run the fan optimisation from within Q-FAN?

Have the Q-Code LEDs on all motherboards. It helps a lot when things don't go smoothly, and especially it could be helpful with the longer and longer first-boot memory training in the current-gen hardware. I have it on x299-E Gaming, I've had it at M12E, yet nopes on the TUF Z690-Plus.

Also, I liked the vertical NVMe slot on the x299 board. If multiplied, that verticality can work toward creating a city appeal of the mobo, and it also allows for using the horizontal space for things like... well, the Q-Code LED is one way to go.

Keep exploring, keep innovating, keep creating

Hello! Someone already asked  to come back with the buzzer socket for the internal speaker? Was very useful also for who don't have a glass door pc to see thje Q-code. And a second request... for us italians...(we dominated half the world long time ago, lol) the italian language in the BIOS would be great. Ty! Ciao.

how about fix your gear when you KNOW ITS BROKEN! I've had multiple board failures and STUPIDLY keep buying your products. That's over.

Apex back in BLACK
control RAM RGB as now it is possible on other boards (Asrock etc)
control the RGB of the mobo
avoid putting circuits neaby the cooler holes on the motherboard
accessible battery location - most of the times you have to unmount other stuff (video card etc) to remove that thing
reasonable fan headers locations - on the edge for instance, not in the middle

put back the SPEAKER header!
the x1 distanced enough from the x16 slot - because onboard sound is below average, we have to use dedicated sound boards

the ram slots no so close to the CPU, nowadays almost impossible to mount AiOs or blocks on mobos, since these are way to close 

there close for speed, the traces to the ram slots to the cpu, shorter the better.

In BIOS when a network port is disabled, actually disable it.

One disables the peripheral devices in BIOS to save energy. 
currently, if a network is disabled in Asus bios, it only hides the network from the OS, but does not send the signal to the chip to shutdown or go to lowest poer mode. That causes the power consumption to go up by 10W! 

Gigabyte does it properly: disabling the network in BIOS sends a shutdown signal to the network chip, and saves 2-3 Watts.

intel network chips have a special pin and command to put them to sleep.

save electricity!

Since there are 8 pages on this thread, hopefully, someone suggested adding USB connections on the motherboard since several different types of devices need that power.

If not actual USB connections, possibly a couple that could be used to supply power.
