    Wouldn't it look better if you switch the usb connector on the left side with a esata+usb combo port? You get both usb and sata in 1 port and it supports a new type of flash storage where a "usbsata" flash drive can reach speed of over 100MB/s.

    With the connector, you can use the existing trace on the motherboard for USB and you can connect the esata port to the sata conector on the mobo.

    That connector looks very interesting, but it could be hard to get one. I might be interested if it is possible to get one.
