Default USB 3.0 drivers for ASUS F2A85-M

This is one of the new FM2 boards and Win7 doesn't have the USB3 drivers for it. They also are not on the ASUS driver disc or site unless they are hidden or labeled as something else. In the utilities section there is a thing called USB3.0 boost in the AI Suite. Anyone have any experience with one of these boards?

From what I am seeing, they should be part of the chipset driver package. If that doesn't end up being the case, let me know and I'll pester one of the components people about it. I always enjoy a good reason to bother one of them in particular.

It is apparently the 3rd party USB chip- I think ASMedia. The AMD drivers load OK but device manager still sees a USB bus without drivers and the 2 blue ports on the back don't work. I tried using the USB 3.0 boost drivers on the disc and they try to load but windows always says that it was unsuccessful. Windows update does not have anything for that chip either.

If it is Asmedia, perhaps you can find the proper drivers here.
