  2. Motherboard doesn't detect usb 3.0

    its enable. I really don't know what happen. Other guy said its a conflit between intel usb 3.0 driver and asmedia usb 3.0. I plug the usb 2 device to usb 3 port and it does detect that drive, but plug usb 3 device to usb 3 port, it doesn't detect. Its weird coz it can detect the usb 3.0 drive when I just finish install win 8.1. After several update, it doesn't detect anymore.
