The esata port won't be disabled, but it won't allow hot swapping which pretty much renders it fairly useless. You would need to plug in a drive, or unplug it while the system is shut off.

You can't just switch to AHCI after a system has been installed as Windows won't recognize it properly. You have to manually force install the AHCI driver to switch to AHCI mode, and that isn't always as easy as it seems. I know how to do it with an Intel or jMicron controller, but not on an AMD or nVidia controller. Two Cables posted this in the EP45-UD3 thread and I don't know how well it will work with your mobo, but it's worth a try.

...PapaSmurf, thnx for this bit-O-Information pertaining abouts the AHCI and all for within my setup/system BIOS.
I will half to give it a try, first, considering a full re-install of the win 7 BUT setting up to AHCI first hand in the BIOS.
For i do have like 5 to 7 setting's within the BIOS that default to IDE when you reset to "OPTIMAL DEFAULTS".......
and, that is where i think i have NOT bother to re-set for prior to setting up to install the SSD for which i have
acquired........Will give this a try first and see, and if all fail's i can re-install FRESH for the win7 Ultim.(64) BUT,
using the rite setting's as noted........again, thnx.....

That's the ticket. Weird how Win7 doesn't automatically load the driver on detection. Thanks.

REP+ for the help!

Is there a way to get the handles on top of the case off? I want to cut out a hole up on top of the case but the handles are in the way.

Unscrew top fan, take off front panel, unscrew screws on the front holding the top panel on.

Might have other screws on the top that I forgot about but I think that's it.

That is the correct way. Under the bottom of the front bezel there will be a cutout where you place your fingers. Place your other hand on the top of the bezel applying a small amount of pressure away from you, hook the bottom cutout, then give a quick yank towards you and slightly upwards to pop it loose. Works on most front bezels that aren't attached with screws, and these don't have any screws. After you've popped it off a few times it comes off much easier.
