    ASMedia USB3.0 Controller Firmware / XHCI Controller Driver Update

    I have been having issues with my USB3.0 and XHCI controller... quirky crap like disappearing drives, etc. Anyway, I found the below site (Station-Drivers) and they had updates that were newer than what was available on the Asus site.

    Just figured I would share if anyone else needs / wants to update their firmware or drivers.

    It seems to have solved the issues that I was having:

    They are working fine for me. You would think that ASUS would have the drivers already posted since, if I read correctly, AsMedia is a subsidiary of theirs.
    My System:
    - Dell 30" LCD Monitor
    - ASUS Rampage IV Extreme BF3 Edition
    - 32GB G.Skill RipJaws RAM
    - Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition
    - Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BL Dual Heat Pipe CPU Cooler
    - EVGA Classified 580 Ultra Video Card
    - Samsung 512GB SSD SATA III (system drive)
    - BigFoot Networks Killer 2100 NIC
    - XFX ProSeries 1250w PSU

    You can install the USB 3 chipset driver and the SATA chipset driver.
    Both revisions on station-drivers are newer than what ASUS offers via their download section for the board.

    Edit: Tested the XHCI firmware update, too. It works as expected.

    In U3Firmware directory run "firmware.exe" and it will inform you if you need the update or not. (Mine did)
    (For what it's worth the firmware update v110914 is the latest, and is sourced from ASUS. Not sure which board it came with but I've confirmed they are exact same chipset.)

    Hi,
    I seem to be having the same problem as you had with my Maximus V mobo. Downloaded the files from Station Drivers, could you guide me on the steps, ie did you install the driver or firmware.

    Thanks

    Newbie.

    I believe it updates the firmware on the actual chip on the board and not the BIOS.
    Running firmware.exe will inform you whether you are up to date or not and whether the flash is applicable for your particular chipset.
