Ok This issue..
Are you running the extreme board?
Alot of people on the extreme have this issue of random BSOD's caused by the usb chipset.
I dont know if it effects the Formulia users but it made me think my board was bad too.
I have had this issue and i eventually solved it by updating the uPD720200 firmware.
Im actually in the middle of stepping someone else through it.
If you are not using one of those newer CPUs that require the 3027 BIOS then don't use it.
It also crashes me all the time using the setup in my profile.
Consider using BIOS 2002 and firmware 188.8.131.52 for uPD720200 chipset and you should be ok.
But i don't recomend touching this unless the board is near unuseable when using USB stuff. (like me and possibly you)
Theres risks involved but its one of those situations where you have to weigh not using the board or flashing it then you dont have much to lose anyway.
EDIT: It also crashed regardless of the port i plugged it into if it was the 3.0 one or not.
The firmware still fixed it for me.Edited by silentsquall - 12/9/12 at 4:03pm
