working, to avoid having to throw in another card, is the on-board GiGE.

    In anycase, I'll give everyone a full report once I've had a chance
    to play with it.

The newer versions of this board have a different chipset fan. Mine runs just below 5500rpm, and the chipset stays between 40 and 45 degrees C. It doesn't have the problems that earlier version have, but it is the loudest fan in the case.

I have one of the onboard NIC's working with the sk driver. FreeBSD currently has a driver, nve, for the other NIC built into the nForce4 chipset. I suppose someone will eventually import the nve driver into DragonFly, now.

I have not messed with the onboard RAID controllers yet since I have yet to order new hard drives for it.
