Hi

Was wondering what SATA chipset is used on this controller as the official page doesn't specify it under the tech specs. Reason is I'm looking for a FreeBSD 8.x compatible PCIe x4 sata controller. (preferable x4, but x1 would do it for now too)

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS U3S6 (http://www.asus.de/Motherboards/Accessories/U3S6/#specifications)

I already bought 1 controller that wasn't compatible (an ASrock with marvell chip).

If its the same chipset as the E35M1-I deluxe mainboard f.ex. then it is compatible as that boards onboard ports work just fine.

Everything SATA 6Gbps will be Marvell. I don't know of any other third party chipset.

Thanks for the reply Rich, guess I'll have to find a cheap SATA2 controller for now to use instead until the BSD drivers are finalized.
