Snapped right into my GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD3H LGA 1150 Intel mother board in my Fractal Define R4 case. And it detected my dumb MadCatz TE2 PS3 stick that has the dumbest drivers in the world with no issues.
I needed a USB 3.0 controller compatible with the XCAPTURE-1 capture device imported from Japan. This capture card is capable of 1080p 60fps capture across a variety of devices. In my case. with the Wii U. Unfortunately, the 3.0 ports on my motherboard were not compatible with this device.
Once I plugged in the Rosewill USB 3.0 device and powered it with a MOLEX connector, we were in business. I installed the included drivers and everything just worked. I highly recommend! Just keep in mind you will need a spare MOLEX power connector. It's a shame it didn't come with a splitter + extension, but I got what I paid for!
First day today: Install the card apply the power. Install drivers.
Tried to copy more than 200 gb different files to a segate usb 3.0 device and the speed with the new card is of 36mb/sec .... It also lags the pc, meaning everytime I copied a file over a usb HDD using the the card my mouse movement is not smooth it stops somes times and then it appears at the supoosed position.
