Benchmark Scores Truth be told, never really bothered to overclock it... I probably should. Any tips? Send me a PM.
Don't really see much of a point in USB 3.0 card readers... at least until the cards themselves can handle a higher speed.

I have memory cards that are rated at speeds in excess of 60MBps and USB 2.0 is simply too slow to cope with these high speed memory cards so a USB 3.0 or Firewire 800 card readers are always welcomed by the pro photographers. :rockout:
