[SOLVED] Does plugging in Front Panel USB 3 disables USB 3 functionality on Motherboard?

Nov 27, 2020
Hey all,

I have the ASRock B450 ITX motherboard that advertises usb 3.1 gen 2 type C in it's IO. Recently, I've been trying to use this type C connector on my motherboard to connect the Quest 2 and run it at USB 3 speeds. However, the plug refuses to run at USB 3 speeds.

After doing some research, I realized that all the ports on my motherboard seem to run at USB 2 speeds and only the front panel USB ports are at USB 3 speeds.

I was wondering if there was any option in the BIOS to have both motherboard IO and front panel IO run at USB 3 speeds?
Also, dunno if this helps, but I have xHCI control set to enabled in the BIOS. (No idea what this means)
