Just tried reinstalling windows and the top two usb ports aren't recognizing keyboard nor mouse during installation. (the ones next to the PS2 ports)

EDIT: OK so I guess that part is normal during installation. Didn't remember that from my first install.

After doing a bit more research I found that this is a known issue on this board and is a problem the VIA USB ports which can turn into a nightmare and are very finicky as to which devices are plugged into which ports. Also not sure why the GA manual specifically lists the two USB ports located by the PS2 port specifically as "Keyboard" as they will not work with until after driver installation, meaning they wont work during Windows installation. There even was a sticker on those ports to use these for kbm.

There's a thread on tweaktown about other people having issues as well as other threads on other forums. A Google search shows that many have the same problem.

On a side note, every time I try to install the latest Intel USB 3.0 drivers (2.0.0.100) I get an error message that my system does not meet the minimum system requirements. The ones from the Gigabyte website however work.

Hope this helps anyone running into the same issue.

too many people had problems with usb, that combo of intel + via is a nightmare

many bios updates and drivers later, some issues still arises

Turns out my UD5H is the same, I've always just used the top USB ports for the Keyboard and Mouse since the rest are USB 3. It's noted as a Windows 7 issue related to a lack of native USB 3 support. I really don't think it'd be that much of a cost increase to just stick with using Intel controllers, I always seem to have issues with the Marvell SATA and Atheros Ethernet controllers.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd be willing to pay an extra $20 for a board with nothing but intel controllers. It's a shame all I hear about the Intel branded boards are complaints about the UEFI, the BOXDZ77GA70K looks pretty nice.

I updated to the F14 BIOS, and shortly after making my last post I had another BSOD with the stop code 3B. I had this same code before my recent clean install, and I'm willing to bed when I crack open the mini dump it will tell me it's caused by my Nvidia drivers (310.90), and ill most likely happen again even if I upgrade to the 314.07 drivers. Just want to mention again that this is a fresh install of Windows x64 Professional with the newest chipset drivers, no other hardware drivers beyond KB, mouse and GPU.

So here's where I stand, I've gotten RMA approval for the RAM and CPU, Intel seems to think it's the memory controller causing my C2 and 1A crashes, and Corsair thinks it's easier to just replace the RAM even if it checks out with Memtest. If I go ahead and do these RMA's and the problems continue, can I pretty much assume it's a motherboard issue? Unlike many of you here, I don't have another 1155 system to toss parts into for testing, so I'm left with replacing parts one at a time. Or is it possible there's another software issue I've neglected to troubleshoot?

This probably isn't directly helpful, and merely speculative, but there's a lot of trending disgust with Nvidia drivers lately and I'm one of the hardest hit. My GTX 285 basically stopped working, instantly, as soon as I updated my driver past v306.97, and all subsequent ones have the same issue. I get past BIOS, see the blue Windows 8 logo, then nothing. Problem is, I can't live with v306.97 because it causes my entire Adobe CS6 to crash incessantly with an inexplicable OpenGL error.

Nvidia has definitely coerced me to upgrade; I had no choice but to order a new GTX 660 that performs about the same. Bastards.

Alright, well that answers one of my questions. I was just trying to figure out what the last drivers were that actually pertained to the 400 series, came up with 306.23 . Last time I had video driver issues was with my 9800 GTX SLI set up, turned out to be hardware related.

Add another to the growing list of people experiencing USB issues with the UD3H. I don't have the time, nor the patience to wait three weeks for RMA atm, so I purchased a Belkin USB mini-hub for dirt cheap off Amazon to mitigate the lack of functional ports for now.

Installing Windows 7 wasn't even an issue since I slip-streamed the necessary drivers for USB 3 ahead of time so all USB ports would work during the Windows installation process. All for nothing I guess.

I just received my ud3h hopefully it will be like my last ud3 which is still kicking strong. Im switching from asrock due to finicky issues that I am fed up with.(it was my first time venturing away from gigabyte and i regret doing so). hopefully i have some good results with this board and my 3570k.
