    I have the ASUS P5P43TD Motherboard, looked everywhere, I have no idea if it is compatible with the Xbox 360 when it comes to flashing, hoping someone can come through and answer this for me. 4 SATA ports available. One taken up by my HDD.

    Cheers.

    Oh btw, not sure if this helps, but I used AIDA64 to check my system, and I saw this;

    Device Description Intel 82801JB ICH10 - 2-port SATA Controller
    Device Description Intel 82801JB ICH10 - 4-port SATA Controller

    ICH10 chipset will work fine. I currently use ICH10R with no problems. I have in the past used as old as ICH8 with no problems what so ever. Probably even work fine on older, I just have not used older.

    Oh just quickly, will using the Xbox 360 to power the DVD drive result in me being BANNED automatically or being offline flagged ?

    Because I mean, I failed the AP25 Check with a burnt copy of Fable 3, and got unreadable disc, which most liely flagged me. (I WILL NEVER GO ON XBL, just want to say that)

    If you dont care about going online then using the xbox360 to power the drive is fine, i have it done and gone on live without issue, just make sure you have the video cable plugged in or the xbox will automatically shut off after a few minutes

    It's only a theory that it does, but I've always flashed my consoles with the 360 powering the drive and I've never had one banned.

    Same here. I used to do that some time back, and none of those consoles have been banned.
