SATA4 Port, missing?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've currently got installed in my system an Asus M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 Motherboard. Just noticed recently that the SATA ports are labeled SATA1~6 however the board only has 5 ports (as stated in the specification) and there is no SATA4 port. Can anyone offer an explanation of why theres no SATA4?

Many thanks in advance.

Look on the back of your board. See that eSata port back there? Yeah that is the missing port. Cheers.

Will take your word for it, can't access the back of the board enough in my case without removing it but will get round to checking it out.
Thanks for the speedy reply.
