    Default Z170X-Gaming 7 , Front panel headers only working at 2.0

    I have a brand new build. 6700k @ 4.5ghz (rock stable), 950 pro, 1080 GTX, Soundblaster ZX, 16GB DDR 4 3000 (2 sticks G.skill), Corsair H115i Case Corsair 750D F7 Bios

    The issue I'm having is the front 3.0 USB ports won't operate at 3.0 speeds. If i plug 3.0 devices (flash drive or WD passport) into the front blue 3.0 port, windows reports they could run faster if I plugged them into 3.0.. If I plug the same devices into the back panel port, the devices work at 3.0. So I think that rules out driver issues.

    I tried both usb 3.0 headers on the mobo with the same results.

    Any ideas?

    More info:

    There is nothing in device manager Yellow or indicating it's missing drivers.

    Troubleshooting dictates that you need to rule out the case's USB 3.0 ports as the culprit.
