    Just got my MB Asus Prime x370 PRO. CPU is late and memory I just ordered.

    Carefully inspected it and found at least two things that are in no manual or drawing for it:
    In the middle of the MB between RGB lighting connector and BIOS chip.

    and the other one is at lower edge between TPM connector and USB3 front connector.

    And now a puzzle solving session is afoot.

    Might be a defect

    Asus never replied but I heard from other sources that connector next to BIOS chip is for reprogramming it if it gets bricked and that some other MBs have it but with needles removed. For bottom one no ideas yet but it's also possible that they forgot to remove them and could be something for testing and troubleshooting. I'm tempted to put some plastic caps on them so something doesn't short them accidentally.
