Heck, you are right (not that I was doubting you in ANY way)

[    2.130533] ahci 0000:00:11.0: version 3.0
[    2.130806] ahci 0000:00:11.0: AHCI 0001.0100 32 slots 6 ports 3 Gbps

[    2.132154] scsi4 : ahci
[    2.132200] scsi5 : ahci

I have a DVD drive connected to 5 and was wondering why it was not working.
I may have to open up the tower and investigate the power connectors...

Thanks Felix.
