I need a GOOD usb3 card and front bay hub for my computer. Bought a SIIG SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Bay Hub+Host Kit Model JU-H40411-S1 back in Nov but have had major problems with it from day one and now believe it was partially responsible for trashing my Enyo and SuperTalent RC8. Over a month now of dealing with Siig has gotten me nowhere. The unit is totally dead, not recognized by anything and they keep wanting me to do a 32bit firmware upgrade. I keep telling them that I am running a 64bit Windows 7 Pro but that does not seem to soak in. Absolutely the worse customer service I have ever dealt with since 1969. I have about decided that no one makes a good quality add-on setup but am hoping I have missed something in my research. Really hate to dump my motherboard in order to get front usb3 ports.

actually from what I know avoiding that combo deal, your best bet is to buy the card and the front end separately.
The vast majority of the cards do have the plug for the front panel hub on them, they just don't actually come with the hub.
