HERE IS my motherboard
Gigabyte-Z68XP-UD3-iSSD -


here is 3.0 flash drive I'm using
http://www.kingston.com/us/usb/personal_business#dt111

windows 7 64 bit


Only getting speeds of 10-16MB / second plugged in blue usb3.0 slot.

Have current etron usb 3.0 drivers directly from gigabyte website

thanks for any help?

Hi :) 

It doesn't work that way.... almost all so called 3 devices get nowhere near the 3 speeds...

All the best Brett :)

Hi :) 

Its the same reason that usb 2 devices were MEANT to run at a certain speed, but most never managed anywhere near it...

Its advertising hype...

All the best Brett :)

Yes, you might call it false advertising. And there's so much variability between brands. Just accept the truth and do research before you buy another drive.
