The CPU labelled side goes to the CPU power socket, not the PSU.

Yes, the PCI-E labelled side plugs into the GPU.

Just check both ends of each cable. It will tell you which end goes where.

Hope this helps.
Yup indeed. Sometimes I can have brain farts... Sometimes I feel ok, other times I feel just straight dumb... :doh:

OK, this driver package should work for you sir. Let me know how it works for you. I have a few different USB PCIE Cards that use the Renesas Controller, and this set of driver works for all of them, so hopefully whatever card you are rocking, these will work for you to. If I remember correctly, after you install you need to reboot. Then You should be good to go! Still obviously build you new PC, but hopefully in the mean time this can get you your USB3 Back!

Super kind of you. Will try it.
According to the readme it is for:
PD720201 & uPD720202

I have
PD720200
in my machine. But hey, maybe it works. I tried so many drivers, another one won't hurt :)

Again, thanks for the driver, but no luck. USB 3 is dead on my Dell. So, back to building the new machine :)

Made a first "dry" test - and hey, it did not catch fire, hurray.

I mean that is always a plus! Hopefully you didn't actually turn it on without water in it and just plugged up the RGB to an extra power supply? Every time I see Linus turn on his PC without Water in it I cringe, lol!

It sucks but confirms my decision to invest in a new machine :)
Well, it is a bit like "I have a flat tire so I need to buy a new car".
Anyway, just for fun I opened a build log.

My Build:
Motherboard: Asrock TRX40 Creator
CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X (24 Cores)
Graphic: Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 Windforce
Memory: 2x HyperX 32 GB DDR4-3200 (building up to 8x 32GB)
M2 1: ADATA XPG Gammix S11 Pro, 1 TB SSD for windows
M2 2: ADATA XPG Gammix S11 Pro, 1 TB SSD for games and software
with a costum build water cooling system.

why This build? good for Game Development, world development, character designing and much more.

Did my research on the hardware side aka preformance.
but still need research on the Watt Required for my Power Supply.

Any advice towards my next power supply purchase always appreciated.

Hope you like my build :)

Have a nice day

Awesome man! I would just grab a 1000w Gold or Better PSU and Call it day. I love any Gold PSU from Corsair, EVGA, and Seasonic. I love the RM1000i but I hate that to change from MultiRail (default) to Single Rail you have to have Corsairs buggy ass iCue Software, and its constantly switching back to MultiRail on its own. This only Matters when you are trying to push A ton of Current down one of the 12V rails (usually only happens when Overclocking a Power Hungry GPU, but could also happen on a Power Hungry CPU depending on how far you pusj the OC). When exceeding the Current Lkmit on a Rail, if MultiRail is on, it will Trigger a Thermal Reboot or Shutdown due to OCP, which sucks.

For this very reason, if you plan on Pushing lot of current down a single Rail, its best to stick with either Single Rail PSUs (which are getting less and less common) or find a PSU that has a Hardware switch on the PSU for the Config Change. Really all you want to know is about how much current you will be pushing down the 12v rail with your Hardware pushed to the Max, and then see if the PSU can support that much current on a Single Rail, if it can, its a winner. All of EVGAs Gold Line will do work nicely for your builds Current Capabilities. So that is where I would personally start.

Good Luck!
