I see that Asus is now offering a MB with front panel USB 3.0 ports, but it appears that the MB does not contain SATA 6Gb/s MB.

I'd like to build a system with front panel USB 3 and the SATA 6Gb/s to use with the Crucial C300 SSD. Any idea if Asus will soon come out with a MB that offers both of these features?

I think you might be referring to the P7P55D-E Premium. If so, I looked at that board, but it seems to only offer rear panel USB 3 ports. I'd like the front panel 3.0 option on a new rig. My current one is fast enough for now, so I don't mind waiting for the front panel 3.0 + SATA 6Gb/s.

I found this that seems to have what I want:

ASRock P55 Extreme4, which has four SATA 6Gbps connectors and two front USB 3.0 ports

However, all my builds have used Asus MBs, and I'd like to stick with them. Hopefully Asus will soon offer a similar product.
