From the manufacturer
Power high-powered USB devices as necessary
The PEXUSB3S4V PCI Express USB 3.0 Card (with SATA Power) adds 4 external USB 3.0 ports to any PCI Express-enabled computer system with support for data rates up to 5 Gbps, while remaining backward compatible with USB 2.0 / 1.x devices.
Time-saving file transfers
The card uses a 'stacked' port layout that places the ports one on top of the other, enabling all four USB 3.0 ports to be external facing, while still allowing the card to fit into a small form factor/low profile computer system using the included low profile bracket.
Plus, with a built-in SATA power connector, each USB port can provide up to 900mA of power to devices that draw power from a host bus connection (500mA for USB 2.0) by connecting to your computer power supply.
Add 4 external USB 3.0 ports to a low profile or standard computer, through PCI Express
Upgrade an older PCIe-based system with USB 3.0 connectivity, to fully utilize USB 3.0 devices.
Expand a system's USB capabilities with four additional external USB ports, for connecting additional external hard drives, CD/DVD drives, MP3 players, printers, scanners, webcams, game controllers, digital cameras, etc.
Look for StarTech branded packaging to ensure you are getting a genuine StarTech product.

Not sure is all MOBO's do this (mine was a Gigabyte) but read your manual carefully, I have to say owning the Rift gave me a crash course on USB controllers. I also got a bios error when I installed it and had to reassign drive letters to all my USB 3.0 hard drives which all disappeared.
With the card plugged in and the system booted, Windows tries, and fails, to install the Drivers automatically. If I download and install the latest RENESAS-USB3-Host-Driver (v126.96.36.199, 28-SEP-2012) from the StarTech PEXUSB3S44V Support web page, my system crashes every time it is awakened from Sleep - even if nothing is plugged into any of the cables.
As long as no Drivers are installed (rendering the card useless), my systems runs, sleeps, and wakes up just fine. But with the Drivers installed the system will only run OK until it goes to sleep - then it either doesn't wake up (have to press the Reset Button) or crashes with a Machine_Check_Exception. I suppose I could turn off the Sleep mode, but I don't really see that as being the solution for flaky drivers.
Does anyone have this card working successfully with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit? Which Driver version are you using? What System Power Settings are you using (including Advanced Power Settings)? Thanks for any help!
Driver CD is an old, mis-matched collection of drivers for about 15 different and unrelated products. Took a while to find the correct driver as the instructions specify the name for a folder that does not exist. Still cannot use the ports for some reason even after installing the appropriate drivers, with a "PCI to PCI bridge" driver error. I'm going to contact StarTech directly for tech support but I'm a little disappointed that the driver CD included was not only generic and not product-specific, but also did not contain the driver I needed. Update: contact with Startech indicated old drivers on CD. Downloaded updated drivers from StarTech website. Still no joy.
The Oculus needs a lot of bandwidth so I went with a product like this with 4 dedicated controllers that could support the max speed on all ports simultaneously. You'll read other people going with cheaper options that don't support that kind of throughput and getting disconnects in the middle of the games.
Great service from Startech when I had questions about installation. Be sure to check your Motherboards chipset software and update if necessary. Had to do that on my 10 year old i7 EVGA motherboard, and sure enough there was an update in 2015 I hadn't seen. Installed it and instant recognition of this card. Those with newer MB's should have no issue whatsoever.
The Vertical sockets MIGHT cramp the plug-in process on some cases...but I eliminated this potential problem completely by simply removing the thin metal strip on the outside of my case in between card slots-- its really not needed on most cases, and now I have zero interference with the USB plug contacting part of the case.
Two power input sockets on the board, old Molex style and SATA, take your pick.

Also, the SATA-style power connector is very fragile.
That is now a thing of the past. Buttery smooth.
Totally worth it.
