Bump. I was hoping to download it, but the 'download' link gives a file not found error: https://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/misc/USB3Boost.zip

Do you have AIsuite3 installed? USB3 Boost is included.

My MB is the P8Z68-V/GEN3, so the AI Suite II is what's supported. I checked, and there's version V1.02.06 of USB 3.0 Boost in there. I see hints on the web of later versions; are there any critical bug fixes I'd be missing?

I'm still running Windows 7, however, and I haven't found any updates for that OS. Thanks for the pointers, though!

The link works for me. But for Windows 7, if you are looking for it to work with UASP drives, it doesn't.

well there may well be, but if you motherboard does not support? Asus Support Downloads (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1) Download the latest version for your Motherboard and OS

According to this article (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/usb-3-uas-turbo,3215-5.html), USB 3 Boost does provide UAS drivers for Windows 7. Even if it doesn't, just enabling "Turbo Mode" should speed up transfers to my external backup drive. I'm hoping to get time tonight or tomorrow night to install it and run some tests.

I don't care what that 3 year old article says, the Asus drivers do not support UASP in Windows 7. Only Turbo mode works and that is pretty much useless.

My Version of Al Suite ll did not have USB 3 Boost , but it does now, someone was kind enough to send me Al Suite lll USB 3 Boost zip file I installed it , Now USB 3 Boost is in my Al Suite ll under "tools" , Therefore I think if u can find USB 3 Boost Zip File from another asus motherboard even if file says for AI Suite lll USB 3 Boost it will install and work . My Version of USB 3 Boost is 1.06.17 but this one workes fine. Why has Asus not updated Al Suite ll for my G30AB most older motherboards have an update to AI Suite lll from Al Suite ll with added features. Im Ticked No UpDated Drivers for My G30AB
Not Even a Lowly W10 Audio Driver Asus is so lazy.

There Were some posts in this thread from MashallR from Asus , but I see they have been Deleted I Wonder Why
They Took My Money And Ran

If you are on Windows 10, you don't need USB 3 boost. It won't do anything. Windows 10 supports UASP natively

After Windows 7, Windows supports UASP natively - so Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 support it. USB boost is not needed for any version of windows after 7. And Asus quit supporting it on 7 (doesn't work). So don't install it for any OS version.

guys, any USB boost is just preconfigured with the whole AI Suite package... therefore, just unzip the whole asus ai suite, then always execute the "Asusblahblah.exe" with administrative rights. Every tweak will be automatically updated. Just make sure you use the same AI Suite that came with your mobo.

Cheers,
