The cable is IDE the actual port/technology is PATA. If its just a single cd rom and a single hd you can run two devices off one port with no performance difference

Asus had some quality control issues in 1st and 2nd quarters of last year they produced some buggy motherboards it happens to every large company once in a while. Wouldn't bother me there rma system is good and most of the boards have been out of the market for a while now.
