    Yea, i got that feeling too, seems a bit soft the board;
    Not sure if there are differences between the generations of stock coolers shipped. I did assemble it carefully and i consider myself handy enough ;). The push-pins took quite some force to press down and when i had it mounted firmly i realized i had to even push more to make the clips fully snap in.
    Anyway problem solved with Auras LPT-700.

    Not sure about the lesson i learned there: no more GB boards or no more stock coolers? Despite the much higher effort i think i'm gonna stick to backplate solutions in the future anyway.

    About the Sys Fan 2, there are some other threads about this problem here.

    Sata performance on additional controllers is usually somewhat lower but those are synthetic considerations, in real life application they should do well enough.

    p.s: most of the reviews i read state that Asus boards for the P35 chipset consume 10-20 watts more power - i wouldn't even look at those.
