They've done some very, very extensive testing and confirmed there are USB 3.0 issues with the 8-series chipset. They tested 22 USB 3.0 drives, with 14 of them experiencing issues and were unable to stay connected when a Haswell system woke back up from standby. Hardware.info have an insane round up of 33 Haswell-based motherboards if you'd like to do some weekend reading!
