This keeps temps low and makes the fan not run all the time at a higher speed.
If you do not want this feature enabled, disable "Intel SpeedStep" in the bios.
I went to check the bios and I found this option under advanced, what your thoughts in this ? should I leave it as it is or disable it, I mean effect my system wise, I don't have problem with noise as I've 7 fans ! also what your thoughts in Deep Sleep feature ? I found it under South Bridge if I'm not mistaken.
Thanks for the input,cheers.

Now same story with new keyboard and new motherboard. Wthin windows it seems fine.
I'll tell you something but it's coming from non your high end technical person, after heavy research I found it out that many boards effected by what they call "Third Party USB" like Asmedia,some other boards use Etron if that's the correct name.
So I did my best to do everything from my part, updating bios,updating drivers etc the only solution is to diable USB 3.0 Legacy in bios and you will not face a problem, since your case is keyboard and mouse then it's not a big deal you will not notice a change, let alone I guess you shouldn't use USB 3 for mouse and keyboard, but even if you're using it in USB 2 also try to disable the legacy and leave the normal USB Legacy enabled inorder to use your mouse in unsupported platforms ex dos and bios screen, but you can disable USB Legacy the normal one if you're going to use the cord/regular/non USB mouse and keyboard.
Disabling USB 3.0 Legacy will effect the speed of people using HDD's etc, but it's not that important for me.
I hope you got my point, speaking in not much English and not your uber technical level Edited by randomdude72 - 10/16/12 at 8:10am
