Not a bad board runs a little faster and a little hotter than a P6T in the same config.

The claim of a powered eSata port interested me.

What is the purpose? It will not power a 2.5 external drive. Still need a USB cable for power along with the eSata cable.

Asus had no clue, could not tell me any eSata device it would power. Confirmed both cables are necessary to power the external drive.

Does your 2.5 external say "eSATAp" or in the manual does it stipulate that it can be powered-off the eSATAp? Also, I assume the cable it ~ 6' in length or less.

What's model of the 2.5 external drive?

Just hypothicating reasons.
