I've added a reference to this post in the USB 2.0 Best Practices guide. Seems that Solution 2 worked in this case.Hi @CaseySJ,
I just wanted to follow up on the USB issues I was having a while ago. Basically, my SSL UF8 controller was freezing up all the USB ports.
I tried everything, and in the end the ONLY solution was an inatek PCIe card (KT4004).
Basically, solution 1 found in the Best practices guide didn't work. I purchased a pluggable 10-port USB 2.0 hub but the freezes continued.
You may want to update the guide as keeping USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices separated or on a USB 2.0 hub plugged into HS09 or HS10 did not solve the issues - only using the PCI card to bypass the intel controller altogether worked.
Also, it may be worth mentioning that most USB 2.0 devices work fine on the built-in USB 3 and 2 ports.
Out of the 11 usb devices I have tried, only 2 have given me issues - both are in fact USB 2.0 hubs with USB 1 devices attached and are the SSL UF8 and Qcon Pro X DAW controllers. As long as these devices are plugged into the PCI card the system is completely stable.
