    Problem with Gigabyte ODIN GT800W PSU with USB2 on new Asus Motherboard

    Hi all

    Windows 7 Home premium 64bit/Windows 8.1 Enterprise

    I have used a Gigabyte ODIN GT800W PSU with a Gigabyte X58-USB motherboard and was able to access the monitoring features by plugging the data connector into a USB2 header on the motherboard. I have recently upgraded the motherboard to an Asus Sabertooth X79 and it fails to recognise the PSU when plugged into a USB2 header. The only way the motherboard recognises the PSU is by attaching an extension cable onto the PSU and plugging it into one of the external USB3 sockets.

    I get the message unknown device (device descriptor failed) if it is connected to USB2 with Windows 8.1

    I believe all the correct drivers are installed.

    Has anybody come across this problem before and how did they resolve it?

    It is not really a serious problem - I am just interested.

    This looks like a cool PSU, but it also looks like an issue for Gigabyte support to sort out.
    The fact that your not using a Gigabyte board may be a factor here too.

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.
