  • Works as it should
  • My mobo had a few bent pins on a USB 3 header, so I bought this to replace the non-working ports. So far, I've had no surprises; the card works as expected. Nicely done!

Customer FAQ

Q1.  The device connected via the PCI-E card keeps disconnecting from the computer or restarting while transferring data. Why is this?
This is probably being caused by insufficient power supply. The PCI-E interface provides some power, but the main source is the 4-pin DC connector. Ensure the 4-pin connector has been securely inserted into its socket on the motherboard.
Q2.  Why am I receiving a “Code 10” error?
"In simple words, a Code 10 error is a very generic message indicating some kind of unspecified driver or hardware problem. Please try the chipset maker's newest driver, which you can download at: http://via-labs.com/en/support/downloads.jsp. For more troubleshooting tips, you are welcome to have a look at this page: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/code-10-error.htm"
Q3.  I’m getting a driver conflict/error/failure message. What should I do? Where can i get the updated driver?
In addition to installing the driver on the CD you can also download it via our website. You can even download the chipset maker's newest driver from: http://via-labs.com/en/support/downloads.jsp.
Q4.  Which types of computer frames are compatible with the PCI-E card?
The PCI-E card is compatible with all standard computer frames. For Mini frames, the Low Profile Bracket is needed to insert the card into the computer’s internal PCI-E port. Please note that the Low Profile Bracket is not included.
Q5.  What are the different interface types for PCI-E cards?
The interface types for PCI-E cards include: PCI-E X1/X2/X4/X8/X16. The most prevalent types are PCI-E X1 and X16, which are supported by our products. Remember to only connect to PCI-E slots when the computer is powered off.
Q6.  How do I install the PCI-E card?
There are 3 steps needed to install the PCI-E card:
    a. Be sure your computer has been powered off, then open the computer case.
    b. Insert the PCI-E card firmly into one of the available PCI-E X1 / X16 interfaces, then connect the 4-pin DC power cable to its corresponding connector on the motherboard.
    c. Turn on the computer and install the driver.
Q7.  Why is the transfer rate so much slower than the 5Gbps promoted?
The USB 3.0 transfer rate is 5Gbps and has a theoretical transfer speed of 500MB/s which is about 8 times faster than the USB 2.0 transfer rate of 480Mb/s with theoretical transfer speed of 60MB/s There are numerous variables that will affect USB transfer rate including data source and destination and file type. With all reasonable usage environments taken into account USB 3.0 can achieve average transfer speeds about 3 times faster than that of USB 2.0.
Q8.  What is the USB 3.0 20-pin interface?
The 20-pin interface is the standard USB 3.0 pin interface, usually located on the computer’s motherboard. This 20-pin interface can be converted into 2 USB 3.0 female ports via the USB 3.0 adapter cable.

Not bad at all. But...
Got this card 2 days ago.Installed it on Windows 7 64 bit. Installed without any issues & works fine.Wish the power output of the ports was more than 0.9A. Anker should make a High Power version of this card with at least 1.5A output for each port so Devices could charge faster.

Power adapter cable
I have a Molex female power source.  Is there a cable which will adapt that source to the power connector on the PCI-E two USB 3.0 card?  If so, where can I get one?  When I got the card, I wasn't paying enough attention to the power requirement.

Unfortunately we don't manufacture a cable like that. There will almost certainly be one available though that could help you get in working order.

All 4 pin Molex Plugs coming from the power supply are Female (plug with 4 holes),  the Power Plug on the card itself is Male. I dont understand your issue.

Happily surprised!! USB 3
Okay for those who have a epty slot for pcie-1 and need more usb ports this is the perfect solution.  It gives a second header for most memory card readers for usb and reading memory cards if the one onboard your mother board is already in use for case header.  Secondly it give two more on back side of computer which is helpful. Software was easy and worked like a champ. Speed is right up there as fa as data transfer.  I had a extra slot and used this card for the fill now i have every usb slot type covered and then some. My system came with 4 backside usb3 slots and two for front case. I added four more slots .. two in front and two in back .. so now iam ready to rock n roll and i will not dee for lack of usb 3 what so ever. Highly recommend as i used to work on electronics at component level and this care is built very well by almost military standards.  Well Done Anker!!

Great upgrade for Enterprise workstation
I got this card to upgrade an HP Z400 that is an otherwise fantastic computer, but came out before USB 3.0. In terms of performance, it is as powerful as anything you can buy today. I have mine upgraded with a Xeon X5660 Hex-core CPU and a GTX 560 Ti video card and Intel 530 SSD. So I wanted to bring the computer's USB up to date since I do a lot of USB 3.0 stuff such as imaging OS's to SSDs and hard drives. USB 3.0 makes this kind of process go a lot faster. I installed the card in the top slot, which is a PCI-E x8 slot right above the video card. I plugged my SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive into the card and booted the system up. I am running Windows 8.1 Enterprise. The computer recognized the card and the attached flash drive immediately. My other USB 3.0 card had all sorts of problems with partial drive recognition. It actually convinced me to initialize and format my other SD Extreme drive (I have 2), and the drive got completely messed up and I had to reformat it. No such problems with the Anker card. It didn't even pause to install to "Device Setup". It was just all there. Being as everything worked, I decided to do an Atto benchmark on my USB drive to make sure the card was not the bottleneck. Being as the SanDisk Extreme is the fastest USB drive there is right now, I figured I could get a good benchmark. Here are the results: Read: 264729 KB/s Write: 199209 KB/s Which is above the rating from SanDisk on the package. So the card is not bottlenecking the USB drive. In addition, I have the card connected to the Anker 2-port USB 3.0 front panel, and they work well together. So I now have the perfect solution to bring 2-4 year old enterprise workstation into the modern age with USB 3.0.

I had just ordered an external usb 3.0 HDD and needed something faster than my computers 2.0 ports. Works as it should and fits in with my black case. The internal 20 pin I connected to Ankers usb 3.0 front hub. Love it!
