Hey TGE

I have the MS IE3.0 Mouse its Polling rate is125hz i always have to run the driver hack to get it at 500hz polling

Now this gaming mouse port on the mobo will it just make mice that can run at 500 or 100hz polling more stable? Or will it make my MS IE3.0 run at 500 is it a Overclocked USB port?

Thanks
