    Default ASUS U3S6 PCIe card, what sata chip(set)

    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

    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.
    My advice - never visit a short-url, no matter who gives it to you. You can't trust any source at any time when you don't know your target

    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.
