Hi. I have a minor but very annoying problem with this board.
The top USB 3.0 ports I know for sure are the ASMEDIA ones on the back are incredibly iffy. I recently ripped out a hard drive from a Seagate expansive drive and put it in this enclosure:
For some reason, I'm getting USB 2.0 (or worst?) speeds going around 40 MB/s~ reads and writes... but if I use the bottom USB 3.0 port, I'm getting the reasonable speeds of 140~ MB/s reads and writes (test were done using CyrstalMark seq test)
Here's the twist: my Patriot Xpress 3.0 USB flash drive and my Hitachi Touro Portable HDD worked perfectly fine with the top USB / ASMEDIA 3.0 ports.
I want to believe it could the enclosure having issues but I don't have an extra USB 3.0 HDD enclosure to test and the current enclosure is capable of doing USB 3.0 speeds if using the intel / bottom ones so it can't be broken.
I'm going to use Revo Uninstaller and completely wipe out the ASMEDIA drivers and reinstall. But does anyone have this sort of problem? Any recommended solution? I've gone into the BIOS and into the USB options, but I see nothing wrong with it but I don't mind to double check or try different ways.Edited by samuraix20 - 4/27/13 at 12:29pm
