More about the 9500S-4 issues with the MoBo and FreeBSD...

A little bit of further information (which I just checked on the machine 
when I went home for lunch):

I identified the Texas Instruments device. It's not the memory (which of 
course makes sense), but rather, it seems to be a FireWire controller.
(TSB43AB22/A IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link) (prog-if 10 [OHCI]) ).

When considering the following FreeBSD output:
twa0: <3ware 9000 series storage controller> port 0xa000-0xa0ff mem 
0xd8005000-0xd80050ff, 0xd2000000-0xd27fffff irq 16 at device 6.0 on pci5

fwohci0: <Texas Instruments TSB43AB22/A> irq 16 at device 11.0 on pci5

Could this perhaps be the culprit???

I don't recall having seen any way to disable FireWire on the MoBo, but 
perhaps there is...

Also, I checked the chipset: it's nForce 4.

Hopefully this additional information contributes to identifying the 
clashing devices...
