Question Need guidance on USB card for my motherboard

Jan 28, 2022
I'm looking at getting a USB PCIe card for my system. I have a ASUS Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WIFI motherboard with 4xPCI Express x1, 3xPCI Express x4, 2xPCI Express x8, 2xPCI Express x16 available slots and the board supports USB v3.2.

I have multiple onboard USB ports, but I've run into issues with the USB connection disconnecting with my APS UBS using PowerChute Business Edition software. It's a known issue and there are various solutions offered online and none have worked. I wanted to try a USB card to see if that would finally resolve the issue and no longer drop the USB connection from my UBS to workstation so that I can receive notification alerts whenever there are any power issues.

Before I buy, I wanted to get any feedback on the card that would be ideal for the board I have. I was looking at the following card: Sonnet Allegro Pro

Any feedback/recommendations would be appreciated.
