I certainly am not downplaying it, it is more the convinience factor...I spent days on this PC setting it the way I want.
I'm just waiting for Asus's response, I will no doubt exchange my motherboard for a new fixed one, however not for a few months.
I'm not worried as I have the 4 sata 3 ports, I just cant wait 2-3 months for the new motherboards,so I'm living with my current PC.
I'm not going to go crazy and send my Motherboard and RMA it straight away, I need to know what Asus is planning to do and maybe offer the same solution Gigabyte has.
just a thought it will probably be easier and quicker
