A derivative of GIGABYTE's highly acclaimed 3x USB Power feature, On/Off Charge enables devices to draw more current from GIGABYTE motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger...more

Due to certain mobile phone limitations, users may need to connect the mobile phone to their PC before the PC enters S4/S5 mode to enable a quick charge from non On/Off Charge USB ports. Charging results may vary by model.
*Whether to support 3X USB power design, it may vary by models.

Reviews
Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good for the price Adequate mobo for the price but why Gigabyte bother to put an out of date Com/Serial port on I don't know, the space could have had an extra USB port or something more appropriate to modern computing. Also needs a bios update to work with Refresh versions of Intel CPU's 01 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Affordable quality Bought this to replace an MSI board that kept giving errors on boot up. This looks and feels quality in your hand, great colour scheme. UEFI bios is easy to navigate. System set up with 2 x 4GB DDR3, Radeon R9 270X and an i5 4670K. Stable as a rock. Will use again 20 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good entry level mainboard We have bought and installed a countless number of these from Scan and built them into systems giving a 3 year warranty at our risk as the mobo is warranted for only two years by Gigabyte. Only two have ever given problems. One was returned under an RMA and refunded immediately by Scan, and the other was sold to a client of ours still in daily use by them with the PC left to sleep overnight (UPS in use) The mainboard has a fault where you have to swap the memory over to the other slot or it will not boot after powering off. OK if you hibernate or sleep though. Scan have given an RMA and are keen to replace it but the customer will not let use dismantle the machine as they are happy with it as is . . .Stupid of our customer we think but an awesome cheap MOBO, even when faulty. Only gripe - This mainbord - and I mean every one we have purchased - will go into a boot loop 3 or 4 times if the disks are changed around or reconfigured even using the hot plug and play disk feature (a minor issue) Only one GPU slot and no full sized PCI slots 20 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Use these boards all the time... Typical quality from Gigabyte, a great board at a great price. 17 February 2014

Answer: 
Provided the PCIe card presents itself as a mass storage controller, which it will, no two ways about it.
