Rampage III Formula : USB 3.0 Question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey there,


I have the above motherboard and I've noticed something peculiar. I am in the process of Troubleshooting an USB 3.0 MyBook Essentials drive and I noticed that when I overclock my RIIIF the drive does not work on USB 3.0 only on USB 2.0. During overclock, everything else works, like memory sticks or joysticks on the USB 3.0 ports except this drive. I need to copy 600 GB of data and in order to reduce time in half, I had to put my PC on stock, reset the bios and plug the goddamn MyBook Essentials Drive in the USB 3.0 ports. Guess what? It works without a hitch ...Why is this happening?

What happens with the USB 3.0 ports when I overclock?? The drive does not get enough power??

When you overclock, are you touching the PCI-E frequency? IIRC the NEC USB controller is PCI-E and might get unstable from high system clocks that affect the PCI-E stability.

Yes, I am at 101 MHz. You reckon I should put it down to 100, the default value?

Any luck here?

I am having the same issues. No PCIe Overclock... but I am at 200 x 21 (4.2GHz)

Every device except Hard drives work in the USB3 Port, such as XBox Controllers, Mice, Keyboards...
HDDs power up but they do not connect? wth
