Best (working) USB 3 controller for Z370 + XP?

Recommended Posts

Hello,
i managed to get installed XP on Z370 MB -  https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/Z370-AORUS-Gaming-7-rev-10#kf , but USB3 is PITA, only 1 Asmedia on board USB3.1 port are working. Intel USB3 is not supported.

I tried VIA 8xx USB and other Asmedia PCI-E controllers, but both are not working some error code in Device manager.. Sorry im not in machine location, but is something like Code 10 or Code 12, device is not working, on part of driver is not working..  Controller worked with other machine and are working with Windows 7/10.. so problem are XP drivers..

Etron and Renesas arent available outside of US on Ebay with reasonable price, what you thing about Fresco FL1100 its not cheap - 20 bucks? Or is there some other good USB3 controller manufactor?

I saw some cheap syba Renesas controllers on ebay for 14 dollars  cannot be that expensive to ship that part.

From US there is usually some taxes and other handling, papers etc.. so im trying to avoid it and shipping price is usually very high. Im not sure if it counts for 14 dollars item too.. Im in Europian Union.

  Would be Renesas better than Fresco?

I think any usb 3 controller that isn't buggy that works on XP is fine.  I dont know anything about Fresco, but the Renesas chips were shipped on a lot of motherboards and I know even early Intel manufactured boards as I have one and Intel supplied drivers for XP.  So there is that.

Ok i have finnally time to XP on Z370, i can confirm that both on board and addition USB 3 (ASM 1142) + USB3 are working (unfortunally only 2 ports on card, as these are quite expensive for just additional USB port, i ordered cheaper version for testing), but i have problem with Renesas / Nec controller - code 10,
im using 21.8.2012 driver / 3.0.23.0 version, i will upload details later, im in hurry..
   I still have some system devices with Exclamation mark, it can be connected, but i will try some VIA 805/806 controller too - if you have some proven drivers pleas share them.

Try different driver version.  Only proven driver version I have is the one for 1 of my motherboards from intel site.  But i don't know what the differences are. with your chip vs mine.  There are differnt versions.  So u need to tell me what your hardware ID is.  You shouldn't need to force install a driver for that card.  There will be a proper driver for it.  That might be your issue.

look at this site

whats the hardware ID of your card.  The PCI\VEN  #

I made  VIA 805/806 its working fine too, so problem is really only with this Renesas / NEC adapter.
