Post Few new USB3.0 pieces
Since my Cosmos II has front USB3 ports, I figured I ought to put them to use. However, since my X58 board lacks USB3, I needed an add-on card.

Decided to try out a Mushkin USB3 flash drive as well. Rated at 60MB/s read 25MB/s write.

And some benchmarks using driver version 3.0.12.0.

USB2.0:

Seems to live up to it's specifications and then some. It saturates USB2, and USB3 lets it shine. The Ventura Pro (rated at 120MB/s read, 70MB/s write) would be even better I'd say, but it's an extra $30.

The Ventura is also made of aluminum, so it has a quality feel to it, and the cap is able to snap onto the back for safe keeping when in use. It's a bit loose, but it holds.
