$129.99 Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 3TB USB 3.0 External HD

I remember someone (thought it was Joe Miner) mentioning his poor performing USB 3 drives in 2008R2, and how they were functioning much better in Server 2012. FWIW, the Seagate is quite good in 2008R2 on USB3 in my box. 164MB read, 142MB write. I have the USB 2 and USB 3 speed test results below.

The performance problem I saw was 2008R2 on a Z77x-UD5H. The Intel USB 3.0 drivers for the Z77 would load but I was only getting USB 2.0 speeds. The ISRT would load and work allright so I don't know. What contrasted that sharply for me was on the MicroServer N40L I was getting the expected USB 3.0 speeds with 2008R2 using a WD card and drivers. In Win7 my performance was as expected on the Z77X-UD5H and corresponded to what I got in Win8 and S2012 Z77X-UD5H. What MOBO & drivers were you using?
