today I have a lot of fun with a Asus z87i-pro board. 3dmark 2001 shows 106000 points on a gtx 980.
This is a very nice board for xp . No yellow questionmark remains in device manager.
But the very best is: After making USB bootfriendly, the asmedia 3.0 driver with
System Reserved and start 0 in registry for hub and also for the usb device,
starts full XP SP3 in 2(!) seconds.
It is unbelievable fast, boot device is a USB stick Sandisk Extreme pro Usb3.1, shows now with CrystalDismark5
have a nice day
