    Default GA-P35-DS4 rev2.0 with 2 HD3870 Video Cards

    Is anyone running 2 HD3870 cards on this board. It looks like the second card will cover the SATA ports on the board.
    I have to be able to access all the ports with all the HD's I have.

    Yeah, unfortunately the layout of the board is bad such that four of the 8 sata ports are blocked by large graphics cards.

    BUT if you desperately need the sata ports, then you can buy these special SATA cables which connect to the port in 90 degrees, instead of plugging straight in.
