@snakes I read this don't know if it's been discussed before but...

or set the USB xHCI mode from smart auto to just auto, that will change the USB mode to 2.0 on the Intel ports.

IMO Intel USb 3.0 itself, forget the board, but itself needs work.
Intel is like the last company to bring USB 3.0 to the table, their controller is so hot that they can only offer 4 ports, their controller adds 0.7W of power to the TDp of the PCH, The USB 3.0 doesn't work without a driver, i mean come on right? What are we dealing with here a NEC, EtronTech, ASMedia, or VIA controller? basically yes that is what you are dealing with, but with the intel name. Not only that Intel doesn't want to provide Intel USb 3.0 support to Windows Vista NOR Windows XP, so if you have either one of those two OSs you cannot use intel USB 3.0. If you update at this point the drivers for Intel USb 3.0 are still also very new, i have only heard of one or two driver updates so far.

BTW also i want to know, any try on a UD3H whether or not the VIA controller(not hub) ports are faster than intels? From my tests With the hub on the G1.Sniper3, i was 20mb/s faster on the VIA hubs than the direct Intel.

Hey, I just noticed that the VIA USB 3.0 driver is not even listed on the GA-Z77X-UD5H driver download page, nor on a bunch of the other Z77 Gigabyte motherboard download pages. I DID find it on the GA-Z77-D3H page though... http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4144#dl

I guess I've been running generic Microsoft USB 3.0 drivers on the VIA chipset on my UD5H all this time. Will give the VIA USB 3.0 drivers a try now. Fingers crossed, that this info helps me and others here.

The VIA USb 3.0 hub the 1:4 hub does NOT have a driver. it is a hardware only piece. It doesn't need a driver, however the Intel USB ports do. Now the UD3H and D3H they don't use the hub, instead they use the 4-port controller which then needs a driver. So let's repeat, the UD5H and G1.Sniper 3 use a VIA hub, the UD3H and of course D3H(because they are like clones) use a VIA controller. The controller needs drivers, but the hub doesn't.

Never mind, the linked driver won't install, suitable hardware not found. Looking further into this, the VIA USB 3.0 ports are actually from a VL810 hub on the motherboard, that runs off the Intel USB 3.0 controller built into the Z77; it's not a VIA USB 3.0 controller, just a hub. Oh well, sorry for jumping the gun posting this and getting anyone's hopes up for nothing.

The via chip on the D3H is different to the one on the UD5H according to the specs for each board. The D3H has a VL800 chip while the UD5H has a VL810 chip.

I don't know if it makes a difference, but have you tried the 1.0.5.235 driver:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21129

instead of the one on the GB downloads page? The newer driver is working fine for me on Windows 7 (I don't remember whether I had any trouble with the older one (1.0.4.225).
post #2409 of 6656
I just did a build for a friend with the Gigabyte GA-Z77 and a 2500. When I push the power button, fans turn and light light up for a half of second and stops....nothing. I thought it was a faulty mobo, but returned it, replaced power supply, case switches, tried pulling off plugs, but nothing changes. All it does is turn the lights and fans on for a brief second and nothing. Please Help!!!!
post #2410 of 6656
Yes, using the newest driver off the Intel site, 1.0.5.235. My issues are very minor, my Andrea Electronics USB-MA USB microphone adapter, plugged into the front case USB 3.0 (coming off of the bottom rightmost USB header on my UD5H), doesn't work on boot, if it is left plugged in, but always works, if I unplug and re-plug one time. With previous drivers, it had to be re-plugged repeatedly, 1-3 times, until it worked; after that, it would work without error, until the next boot. The other minor issue is with the USB ports on my Steelseries Merc Stealth keyboard (plugged into USB 2.0 on mobo rear), anything I plug in causes a "USB Hub Power Exceeded" message to pop up, even something as low-power as a USB flash drive. I'm pretty sure the keyboard + USB flash drive are not drawing that much current, this combo always worked fine on my EP45-UD3R, also on USB 2.0.

Edit: Just checked in Device Manager under the Generic USB Hub where the keyboard and USB flash drive connect; the keyboard says 100 mA required, and the flash drive says 200 mA. I would expect the rear USB 2.0 port to be capable of 500 mA, that's pretty standard, I believe.
