I have a strange issue with my 970-UD3 v1.0 ,related to the USB 3 Etron controller stuff.
Anybody else seen this ?!
Randomly the controllers ,more exactly one of them at a time ,the front one or the back one ,loose the drivers and get a Code 10 in Device manager.It s like there is some BIOS resource conflict.
This happens randomly in both Windows 7 and Windows XP ,it s a dual boot machine.
So the question is wth is the problem ?!
I see on gigabyte forum.de ,the german one , that i am not the only one seeing this.
So the strange problem is totally random ,sometimes the controllers are 100% ok ,but after a restart one of them ,mostly the front panel Etron chip looses the driver or something.
It happens with all BIOS-es i ve had (F3,F5,F6,F7 and F8) and seeing the speed at which Gigabyte is releasing useless BIO-es i lost patience.Reinstalled Windows and it s all in vain.This along the slow boot ,along the crappy SATA performance and the throttling issues are making me think that this board may be my last Gigabyte one.
What about FM2 motherboards with 2 APU sockets and GDDR5 on-board AMD ?! Maybe i am to sarcastic sometimes
