Bought a P5W DH Deluxe the other day and after going over pics and reviews again I noticed that it appears to be missing one of the jumper thinga-me-bobs leaving me with just one. According to all review pics it shows two(left and right) for Safe mode/Default setting.
Is this going to cause any problems?

No.I believe what they've done is swtched to a two jumper system.By this I mean on some boards you reset your bios by moving a bridge from pin 1 and 2 to pins 2 and 3,leaving it there for a few seconds(5-10),then move it back to pins 1 and 2.But on other boards they simply have 2 pins so when you need to reset your bios,you just bridge the two pins for a few seconds,then remove the bridge.I simply can't see what other reason they would have for doing it otherwise.As the boards do go through a rigirous testing program before being shipped out.

That has nothing to do with the bios and there are two different boards but its the VMCH that is different. The cmos jumper is under that one and you can see it in the pic but I am kinda staring at another one right now.It's the E-Z raid options.Leave the jumper right next to that one empty and get a jumper on the next for default raid 1 or leave it like it is for Raid 0 or move the jumper to the other end for JBOD.So default(Raid 1) is just the middle jumper open and the others closed and keep it the way it is for Raid 0(fast but not redundancy).You just lost a jumper. Page 2-27 in your manual and page 5-48 for setup.

Yes, I will only be having one WD SataII HDD attached by a Sata cable and will not be using RAID.
So it is of no concern since I will not be utilising RAID?
