USB 3.0 very slow

New system MSI z87x GD65 Mobo
16GB corsair vengeance RAM

Transfering files is really slow. Transfering a 2.8GB file to a sandsisk cruzer 4GB flash drive does so at about 3MB/s. Transferring from the drive is about 16MB/s. When I plug the drive into a different computer that is on USB 2.0 the transfer from drive to disk is about 90MB/s and the transfer to drive from disk is about 60MB/s.

I have my front bay ports plugged into the USB 3.0 slot on the mobo.
Cant figure out why it is going so slow.

    Well as you may have read, the speed was different on two separate computers so it is not the flash drive.
