Intel's RST is already installed, so that's already taken care of. However, I have not yet used an external drive with the P8P67 nor have I seen anyone talking about it, so I don't know if it will work when connected to any of the internal SATA ports. Although if it works when connected to one of the internal light blue or white SATA ports and if this isn't inconvenient for you, then I say "why not?"
On the other hand, you might be able to get AHCI mode from the JMB Storage Controller (from eSATA). The JMB Storage Controller is always in IDE mode. So to use AHCI mode for eSATA, the JMicron JMB36X Controller Driver has to be installed.
