USB 3.0 ports not working, fine with usb 2.0

I have a problem with my USB 3.0 after a fresh windows install. Although my USB 3 drive is recognised fine as usb 3.0 (no "this drive can perform faster" messages) after a few seconds of a transfer the drive disconnects and reconnects, breaking the transfer.

Has anyone got any ideas of what I can try? (Running gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 motherboard with WD MyPassport 1tb drive)
