The number of devices I use has grown recently. After I added the last few, my USB devices seem to have become unstable. Some times, a device will stop working until I unplug it and replug it back in. Other times, all devices will flash off and then on (almost as if there isn't enough power). 


USB Devices:

- Logitech C615 Webcam

- Yeti USB Mic

- Razer Keyboard (takes up 2 USB ports, 1 is a pass-through)

- Gaming Mouse

- Presonus USB audio controller

- Novation USB Keyboard Controller

- XBox One controller

- Sometimes I plug in my iPhone to charge



- Asus x99 deluxe: has 12 onboard USB 3.0 ports

- Corsair RM1000i PSU

- I7-5820k CPU

- 16 GB G.Skill Ripjaw 4 (2x8GB)

- Asus GTX 970

- MSI GTX 970 (SLI)


I feel like a system like this should be able to handle what I'm throwing at it. So maybe I'm doing something wrong.  I'm buying a powered USB hub to see if that will help, but it seems crazy to have a motherboard with 12 USB ports that I can't use.
