Reportedly the motherboard in question destroys SATA drives as I came to know from a friend on Facebook.
Pakistani Hardware supplier Galaxy Computers (head quarters Karachi) is still selling this even after the boards have been recalled by the manufacturers in international markets. So all you guys who have this board or are interested in buying it, watch out!
The Pakistani reseller doesn't acknowledge the fault, says my source who claims he was thrown out of the shop when he confronted them with this news. Typical.
