Even PCI-E addon Asmedia Sata controller is working fine, im its working with NVME, im boot from one. VIA USB3 Addon card, its not working within setup (at for mouse), but its working for USB installer and after that VIA USB3 is working.. or semiworking as with all other OSes - i never got Xbox 360 controller working with it, in any OS and driver, but mouse and zillion other devices are working fine. I hope that some other PCI-E USB2 (Modchip chipset)/ USB3 card would be better especially with Asmedia i hope high hopest..
I also made deeper look on frakenstein combo PCI-E addon cards:
- there are SATA+USB3 and USB3+LAN cards - to save the slots..
- USB3+LAN are not so great they just can save some messy cabling, but other they are just internal made as USB-LANs add i saw Assix and Realtek Gigabit ones and almost all of them are using VIA USB3, only exception is Startech(=Expensive) PEXUSB3S3G , which are using NEC USB3 - which are from my experience even worse that VIA. So far i dont see some not branded Startech card for same price, which is quite normal, because Startech often, just selling same HW as other for 2x,3x higher price, but have some unique devices..
- Sata + USB3 - seems as better deals.
There Syba SD-PEX50055 - with Etron USB3 + ASM1061 and i dunno which Sata controller and us usual which good price available only in US, because EU shipping is more expressive than card itself. - This could be good Intel used Etron USB3 as its first USB3 implementations.If you will find some with good EU shipping price let me know.
and probably better Asmedia cards ASM1042 (USB), ASM1061 (SATA), ASM1182 (just some pci-e chipset) - which is available form Asia - Free shipping and cheaper - i ordered one.
- There is also VLI VL805 (VIA) & ASMedia 1061(Sata)
Im old goal oriented goatman, i care about facts and freedom, not about egos+prejudices. Hoarding=sickness. If you want respect, gain it by your behavior. I hate stupid SW limits, SW=virtual world, everything should be possible if you have enough raw HW.
