        The pin out in the Quick Reference Guide is incorrect, I have let the people that own those documents know and it will hopefully be corrected ASAP.  The pinout table in the TPS is correct; the layout of the header is incorrect. Your best option at this point is to follow the spec:

         

        http://www.intel.com/content/dam/doc/technical-specification/usb3-internal-connector-cable-specification.pdf (page 8&9)

         

        Additionally, there is a new BIOS available in download center that should address some of the RAID install and stability issues people are seeing.

         

        The new BIOS appears to resolve some of the USB 3 issues, however we are still investigating  as it does not appear to resolve all of them.  I have found that if any of the optimization (Fast Boot) settings in BIOS are turned on, that seems to cause the controller to not start, and the yellow bang in device manager.

         

        Thanks

          I hope that these problems will be resolved as soon as possible.
          I think that many users are waiting for it.

          Thanks

            hi all,

             

            i tried the new bios without luck and switched back to the previous (380)  version.

             

            what happened,after installing version 424 windows crashed on boot,the placebo cpu fan turned very fast and windows stucked with a black screen.

            like i mentioned in another thread i'm not using the fan connectors from the motherboard but a external controller.

             

            usb 3 driver wasn't installed either.

             

            thanks,

                After updating to BIOS 0424 still yellow Bang and BSOD issues. I try different drivers, different voltages, different overclock values, no success.

                Waiting for resolution...

                    We have identified a timing issue with USB3 front panel header that appears to be causing the yellow bang in device manager.  We currently have a BIOS in validation to address this and hope to have it available for public release in the next couple of days.

                        Hi Chris

                        There also appears to be an issue with the DX58SO2 and the USB 3.0. Is intel looking into this also. The resent BIOS update did nothing :-/

                          I too am having the same problem with USB 3.0 on a new build and thought I would pass along my experience.

                           

                          This is a new build, everything powered up fine.  Windows 7 install would hang during the the last part of the install.  Tried differend disk drives, raid, non-raid, even a diffeent install dvd.   Hangs same place every time.  Updated the BIOS to 0424 which got me by the hang.  I did have two BSOD during the remainder of the install but none since the install was completed.

                           

                          I to was having the 45 second delay on post with code 58.   After the boot was complete, the second USB 3.0 host controller did not start with a code 10.

                           

                          What I have found is that if I disable the second USB 3.0 host controller and then enable it, it enables with no problem.  I can even use the USB 3.0 device.   On subsequent boots, the post is fast, maybe 2-3 seconds.  Both USB 3.0 host controllers are fine. This is true no matter how many times I boot.  But as soon as I hit F2 and go into the BIOS settings, the problem starts all over again and I need to disable and enable the host controller.

                            Hello Chris

                             

                            Now, with new BIOS 0430 everything seems OK. No yellow bangs, no BSOD's.

                            Thank You

                              Chris,

                               

                              0430 did not resolve my problems, I still have the same symptoms.   That is, I have a 45 second delay at post on code 58 and the second USB 3.0 host controller does not start.   I can resolve it be disabling and then enabling the second USB 3.0 host controller.    I'm good then on boots using restarts.  But if I do F2 to go into the bios or do a power off and on the problem comes back.

                                I am seeing the same results as zion2012 with bios v. 0430.  I can temporarily fix the yellow exclamation and slow boot by disabling and re-enabling the usb3.0 controllers then re-enabling them in device manager.  As soon as I go into cmos again the problem returns.

                                  Mea culpa, I was wrong, same problem here. But....I did some testing....

                                  Problem occurs if USB optimization (fastboot) is enabled. Other optimization method don't count, neither general or video.

                                  After entering BIOS, yellow bang appears, untill disabling USB optimization, and re-enabling in device manager.

                                  So if u dont touch USB optimization, everything work perfect.

                                   

                                  Usb optimization leaves usb initialization to OS (for example you cannot press F8 to enter safe mode bcs keyboard is not working untill OS boots), so I guess that little USB init. must be left to BIOS.

                                    No yellow bangs, no BSOD's with new BIOS 0430. Everything seems OK.

                                    Now, I can use USB3.0 (or USB2.0) Device in USB3.0  Ports.
