USB3 stick install in USB3 port = FAIL for me.
And this was with the USB 3.0 .INF files integrated into the slipstream install? Damn... That's sad news.
Well I'll still be able to install off a 2.0 port so not the end of the world. at this point though, Ive pretty much given up on integrating the drivers to the slipstream install. To advanced for me right now.
Still could use some advice on tweaks though if you have the time Hiviz. Thanks.

This is my first post and I am a beginner and in my mid-seventies. I decided to build the best rig for flight simming, so processor speed was very important. OCing seemed like a good idea. After all, how hard could it be? Well, I think I overestimated my abilities. And, as I discovered, it is hard. I installed an Asus ME4 B3 into a Cosmos 2 case and even got the Corsair H100 water cooler running without noise and using 4 CoolerMaster fans in push/pull blowing out at top. I have 2 EVGA GTX560Tis in SLI without problem, occupying 1st and 4th PCIE slots. My Asus wireless LAN card PCE-N13 is in slot 6. Slots 2 and 5 are of course covered by the GPUs. I want to install my Creative X-Fi SoundBlaster sound card in PCIE slot 3 because I want to take as much sound processing load off the mobo as possible. But, I cant get the mobo to recognize the sound card in slot 3. If I install the sound card in slot 6 instead of the wireless card, no problem, and the sound card works great. But, the wireless card doesnt work in slot 3. I want both cards installed. Is this possible? My power supply is a CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold 1200Watt and "C" drive is on Crucial M4 256GB SSD and I also installed a second OCZ Agility3 240GB SSD for my flight sim. I'll use a 2 TB HDD in the hot swap bay for storage when needed. With 2 DVD drives and connection to the Cosmos 2 top/front panel, I'm quickly using up my 6 SATA ports. Is there any way to install more than 6 SATA drives? I think I may be in the wrong forum and if so, I apologize. I've been reading messages on this site for the last 2 weeks and have learned a lot, but I now think I have sensory overload. This has been somewhat confusing. Thanks for any help or direction.
