I have tried both ways. The first few times I tried with all the newest drivers I could find (as I usually try to do for best compatibility with hardware I am running.) Then have tried with only stuff form the MSI website. This last install is a mix...

Are you using the native USB 3.0 ports on the rear of the case or the front ones running from the midboard header?

Well, I have an interesting update.

I received the new Sandisk Extreme USB 3.0 stick and it seems to run fine at USB 3 speeds and shows its running at Super-Speed in UsbTreeView! I have also found out that the Samsung Note 3 needs to be placed in "Usb 3 mode" and only stays in it for 10 minutes! What a sham that is with the Note!

So the only issue is with this Usb 3 Syba Dock station and an older Lexar Usb 3 stick. I think the Lexar stick may have an issue anyways, as it doesn't work at Usb 3 on any computer I've tried now. Syba thinks I should RMA the dock, but didn't confirm if it was defective or not, so I may send it back and try something different again... MSI thinks it could be the motherboard, but I am having doubts on this after the above...

Sooo, this has taken a weird twist and I'm not sure why the two items still don't work right, but at least its going in the right direction I think.

I replaced the Syba dock with a new different Vantec enclosure, and its reading as Super-speed usb 3, and with the WD black in it is getting decent speeds for a platter drive I love this Sandisk Extreme usb 3 stick too, its fast!!!

So it looks like it was issues with multiple hardware all along :/

Thank you all for helping me try and figure this out, its much appreciated!

Are we talking about 50mb/s read or write speeds?
If so, they are not USB2 speeds, since the 'limit' is between 30-40 mb/s...

I don't know what you mean.
Never mind, I was not aware this issue was solved...
But what I meant, is that earlier on the thread I read that someone was achieving 50mb/s speeds, and flagged that as USB2 speed...
Usb2 speed does not go that high, but stays between 30-40 mb/s...
So there was something going on to make an USB 3 device go that slow...

ah, I see what you mean. I was getting 45MB/s and it was usb 2 speeds as the devices were only detected as usb 2 (High-Speed devices, not Super-Speed) in UsbTreeView. Now this platter drive is doing about 95MB/s which is good for a platter drive

This Sandisk Extreme usb3 stick does about 240r/140w, which is really nice!
