Slow USB3 speeds on new set up! Upgrade bummer!

I upgraded to Core i5 4440 yesterday along with this board:

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-H97M-DS3P (rev. 1.0)

I had this board previously:

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 4.1)

This board needed a driver for USB3 ports to work (i am assuming it had an external controller instead of something on the main chipset) I used to get around 50-90 MBps transfer speeds on USB3 components on it and a 9 meter USB3 cable (! yes 9 meter) worked flawlessly on it for Fiio E10:

Amazon.com: FiiO E10 USB DAC Headphone Amplifier: Electronics

to amp this:

Audio-Technica's ATH-M50 | Professional Studio Monitor Headphones || Audio-Technica US

After the upgrade I am no longer able to use that long cable and i get slower speeds on USB3. It looks like it is capped @ 49 MBps. I was expecting better performance as this chipset is new and USB3 is on the "Chipset" instead of an external controller.

Any inputs will help...

I was using same OS on previous set up so I guess it has nothing to do with the operating systems. There are users reporting slow USB3 speeds on windows 8/8.1 as compared to what they got in windows 7 but i think its not what I am facing.

The USB3 pen drive capped out @ 50! Sorry my bad :ph34r: Transferring from pen drive to ssd/hdd gives 70/80 MBps.
