    True, but if your running more than 2 sata, your stuffed.
    Many already have ssd for os, standard sata hdd for data & optical drives...
    Isn't some eSata linked to this as well.
    Guess your ok if you have additional controllers, ie Marvel.

    Your better off getting your money back as Intel is recalling products...

    I checked my ASUS P8P67 Pro manual Specs/ Storage, it says the eSATA & eSATA/p ports are on the JMicron SATA controller.

    I don't think there is another MB that will take a SB i7-2600K CPU though.
    I'll probably take AnandTech's advise & hoping the Z68 has no problems.

    Looks like newegg already pulled the ASUS P8P67 PRO board.

    Good news is Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, ECS have released announcements stating any affected boards will be replaced around April once the new boards are available.
