How do I know whether my USB 3.0 card is actually working?

So I installed a USB 3.0 card into a slot on my HP 580t motherboard. The USB 3.0 shows in my DEVICE MANGER list as OK. My WD external 3 TB HD is rated as 3.0 capable, but I really see no speed difference from 2.0 when I do a virus check of its content.

How can I tell if the USB 3.0 port is doing 3.0 rated speed and not just 2.0?
