We would like to let you know that we haven’t received an official notification stating that the USB 2.0 header will be removed from these units.
By looking at the technical product specifications you can confirm that this header has not been removed.
I have bought two DC3217IYEs and neither of these boards have the internal USB connectors. Furthermore the BIOS only indicates 3 USB ports. I bought these units expecting to have this connector. I have gone as far as installing the 10 pin header and connecting USB devices. I see power but no link. Is this the way all of these systems will come? For the mod I made, is this just a question of a BIOS update.
Please advise. ... Randall
Some of the earliest DC3217IYE units did not include the internal USB header - it was added later. Can you tell me the AA# of the board inside your unit (it's on the barcode label).

Thanks for looking into this matter for me. Here are the
GEGK248009M5 AA G76540-201
GEGK24900KRV AA G76540-201
These internal USB port were part of the specs. Will these boards be replaced?
Is there any news on this issue?
My NUC is also missing that internal USB header, so apparently it is from one of the early batches.
At this moment I do not need this header, but may be in the future it could be of use.
So is there a possible replacement foreseen?
Hello Randall and Schrand,
Our NUC development team is interested in finding out what our customers use the internal USB header for. Do you have a specific add-in device that you plan to plug into the USB header? What make and model is it?
