Which USB 3.0 ports on the back of the motherboard (ASRock Z77 Extreme4) are the actual Intel ports? There are 4 USB 3.0 ports, two of which are ports by Intel, while the other two are by ASMedia ASM1042.
Top 2 ports: right beside the PS/2 port
Bottom 2 ports: right above the audio jacks
If anyone knows, please let me know which ports (top or bottom) are controlled by the Intel chipset. Much appreciated.
Yeah I have been looking for this info quite extensively and I can confidently say that it's not part of the original documentation - strangely I can't find anything online either, hence why I'm asking. I will contact them and I'll update here once I get the answer.
Well voirin, thanks, and you are correct. You know I am about 75% comfortable using Device Manager, but how you managed to correlate controllers to plugs is beyond me. In any case, this is the reply I received from ASRock (thanks Eric Lin):
Intel USB 3.0 is the one in the middle
Asmedia USB 3.0 are the one on top.

So there we have it. For reference if anyone else needs to know.
