View Full Version : Motherboard randomly disconnecting my USB hub

I just bought a z370-F Gaming motherboard along with a 8700k and I'm having issues with running USB hubs.

I get random disconnects on any hub I plug in to it and its not just in windows. It happens in BIOS as well.
I have tried 4 different hubs and all act the same. These are good quality Anker powered USB 3 hubs, and I have never had any issues with them before. One of them has been plugged in to one computer without fault for over a year.
They are different models and sizes and normally I only use one but for the sake of troubleshooting I tried them all.

I use the hub to power mouse and keyboard since my computer is a couple of meters from my desk. I have tried two different USB cables from the computer to the hub and both get the same result.

I have also disabled USB power saving in both performance options and for all specific USB devices in device manager.

I'm kind of at my wits end. Sometimes it happens once an hour sometimes several times a minute.
Please ROG, you're my only hope!
