Some but not all USB 3.0 ports on my motherboard suddenly claim not to be able to provide power

CPU | Intel core i7 6700 3.4Ghz
Mobo | Gigabyte H170-D3hp
Ram | Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) 2133Mhz
GPU | Galax GTX970 4GB
SSD | Samsung 850 Evo 500GB
PSU | Thermaltake 600w
OS | 10.11.6

I initially thought this issue was a blown port and while it still could be hardware I've noticed something very odd.

Two days ago I was using a USB 3.0 portable drive doing some colour grading in Da Vinci resolve. Quite suddenly, the mouse stopped working and then a couple of seconds later the system reset itself. I have no idea what happened but when the system rebooted a message popped up and for a tense few seconds I was worried the drive was ruined. The message said something like 'drive connected to mac but does not have power' or something along those lines but specifically indicating that I should plug the device in to a port that has power.

This was the same port the drive was plugged in to when the reset happened and so I unplugged it and moved it to the port above and it worked. I was curious about the issue today and didn't have any critical work to do so I had a test with another bus powered drive that also previously worked fine. This one also had not encountered any dodginess like the sudden system reset either. I plugged it in to the port that I knew had caused issue and received the same message. I plugged it in to the port immediately adjacent and also received the same message. The thing is the drive is spinning so it *is* receiving power and the fact that it's giving me that message suggested to me that is registering on at least some level with OSx.

Anyone know what I should do?

Usually caused by a malfunction with the USB port itself, a driver issue or a fault with the USB device. Test all 3 and see which it is.

      Patched OSInstall.mpkg and OSInstaller.framework to allow OS X 10.11 installation on MBR partition.
       
      To use those patched files you must follow HowTo-10.11.x to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
       
      The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x patch method
       
      How to make 10.11 installer for MBR?
       
      Open /Applications/Install OS X El Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.dmg first.
      1. Restore BaseSystem.dmg to HFS partition and rename the partition’s name as OSXMBR as /Volumes/OSXMBR/
      2. Copy InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.dmg to /Volumes/OSXMBR/
      3. Copy InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.chunklist to /Volumes/OSXMBR/
      4. Copy InstallESD.dmg/AppleDiagnostics.dmg to /Volumes/OSXMBR/
      5. Copy InstallESD.dmg/AppleDiagnostics.chunklist to /Volumes/OSXMBR/
      6. Remove /Volumes/OSXMBR/System/Installation/Packages
      7. Copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages to /Volumes/OSXMBR/System/Installation/Packages
       
      8.
      OSInstall.mpkg replace to
      /Volumes/OSXMBR/System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg
       
      OSInstaller replace to
      /Volumes/OSXMBR/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/OSInstaller.framework/Versions/A/OSInstaller
       
      9. Copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages/Essentials.pkg/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
      to /Volumes/OSXMBR/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
      (use Pacifist v3.2.14 to access the contents of Essentials.pkg, and make directory /System/Library/Kernels first.)
      (Need kernel only if you use Chameleon with -f to boot the installer disk, needn't with Clover.)
       
      10. Boot to /Volumes/OSXMBR/ to install Mac OS X.
       
      Work fine with Clover
       
      Work fine with Enoch
      and /Extra/kernel.plist with
      <key>KernelBooter_kexts</key>
      <string>Yes</string>
       
      10.11.6.15G1011
      10.11.6.15G31
      10.11.5.15F34
      10.11.4.15E65
      10.11.3.15D21
      10.11.2.15C50
      10.11.1.15B42
      10.11.0.15A284
       
      If you want to patch MBR by yourself, here is the patch code, works on 10.11.0 ~ 10.11.6
       
      perl -pi -e 's|\x48\x8B\x78\x28\x48\x85\xFF\x74\x5F\x48\x8B\x85|\x48\x8B\x78\x28\x48\x85\xFF\xEB\x5F\x48\x8B\x85|g' OSInstaller
      codesign -f -s - OSInstaller

      Hi guys.

      Sometimes I am a complete noob, so I deleted two kexts from S/L/E and now my Asus Q200E laptop with OS X El Capitan boot hangs on kernel panic. I still can enter go through Clover to reach Recovery Mode and use Terminal, so I've put the two kexts on a USB pendrive and after some struggle I've managed to succefully copy them using Terminal, but the boot is still stuck on kernel panic. As I remember, these are the commands I've typed:

      mount -rw

      cp -a /Volumes/usb-stick/name.kext /Volumes/my-osx-drive/System/Library/Extensions

      Is there anything else I should do? Is anything wrong? Should I type some command else? For instance, should I type something to fix permissions and rebuild cache?

      Thanks a lot!
