Two USB 3.0 Cards in PC ok? Conflicts?


#1

I am considering buying your USB 3.0 PCI Express card and also your SATA to USB 3.0 docking station. I already have a 2-port ASUS U6S3 PCI-Express USB 3.0 card in my system (both ports are in use, which is why I would need a 2nd card to use with the Plugable docking station). Is there any reason to fear that having two USB 3.0 cards in my system (yours and the ASUS) would cause a conflict of drivers, or other conflicts? If it matters, my PC is running Windows 7 64-bit.

Hi!

Thanks for posting and for your question!

We actually had never tried this before, so we had some fun experimenting this morning in the office.

We successfully had two Plugable USB 3.0 cards at the same time, working with no problems whatsoever on our Win7 64-bit machine. As you can imagine, we didn’t even had to install the driver again, Windows already had it in the system.

Here’s a screenshot of what the Device Manager looks like:

We found on Google that the ASUS U3S6 also seems to share the same main chipset as our Plugable USB 3.0 card(with modifications), so chances are you may not even have to install an additional driver for it to work.

Hope this helps!

Let us know if you have any more questions!

Thanks for the fast response. With that assurance I just ordered the Plugable 3.0 card and the 3.0 dock from Amazon.
