Also, consider installing into the motherboard only the strictly required
devices to work (i.e., processor+heatsink, memory and a couple of hard
disks to test mdraid).

Okay... I can't recall if you are already considered/tried disabling the
USB host controller from your BIOS.
Anyway, from the above messages it seems there are two USB hosts detected
("2-1" with 6 ports and "4-1" with 8 ports) and the latter is the one
exposing the over-current condition. Which OTOH is also weird because
according to the motherboard specifications¹, there has to be x2 USB 3
ports and x12 USB 2.0. There's something not matching here.
