I would run away from any such board :-(

OK, so it works, but the on board nve doesn't and the RAID isn't as good
as I hoped it might be :-(

Also, given that nVidia don't seem willing to reveal the
super-secret-squirrel specs for anything on the board I'm not sure it's
ever going to work as well as some of the board from more enlightened

I'm seriously contemplating changing my motherboard away from an Abit
AN-8 Ultra for the above reasons.
