Even Windows Experience, which I don't put too much weight on, is maxed out now at 7.9 (was only registering as 6 before). Now if only Firefox 15 wouldn't crash every five minutes I'd be golden.

As an aside, I never thought I'd see the day when playing a game- Battlefield 3- would feel more like work than play. I'm trying desperately to get footage for the rest of my montage, and it tends to be very slow going when you know exactly what you want for footage lol... (Link to my channel is down in the signature).


I'll post pictures of the rig tomorrow. My camera is dead and I need to get some rest so I'm not falling asleep in class tomorrow. Peace y'all!
My Firefox has been doing the same thing.. I though it was just me..

What is the full model of the motherboard? We would like to look into this. Telling by this post though, it sounds like the motherboard is the one having issues with the 3.0. Remember, the 3.0 ports are extensions of your motherboard.

Yes, definitely need that motherboard model. We just happen to have that same external usb 3.0 model to test.

Wow, thanks for the responses all. It's a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H with Bios F14. I tried all 3 of the 3.0 headers as well. The rear ports work fine and this is a brand new replacement motherboard which the other board exhibited the same behavior. Thanks for looking into this Coolermaster.


EDIT: When I received the new 3.0 headers I noticed that the screw threads were on both sides of the ports which indicated that it was a different revision I am assuming.

I also have a front panel USB bracket that came with the motherboard.. I will test to see if that works when I get home.

This is my first build that I'm amazingly proud of. I would like to do some cheap cool looking mods to the case. PM if you have run across any ideas. This case is rocking the AMD FX-8150 running at a moderate 4.1gHz. It is cooled with a topside mounted Corsair H100. The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3. The RAM is Patriot 1600 el series with four 4 GB sticks. The system also has sli'd evga 550 tt's. The OS is run on a Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD.

In comparison to some of the other rigs on here it's very simplistic, but, nonetheless, I am very satisfied. I will add in some other bells and whistles as time goes on. Enough chit-chat, here she is!

I just got the CM Storm Stryker but for the life of me I can't seem to figure out on how to take off the plastic top where the handle is. The instructions are less than helpful and from what I can see it looks like it is all rivets and I don't see any screws. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

There are 6 little plastic clips on the inside of the case (at the top of course) you'll need to remove both sides of the case to remove the top part of it.
