What mean you by 'certified'?

Mostly people are insterested in if it boots and if all the devices  
work.  The answer to those are yes and no, respectively.

The built-in disk controller doesn't work under any FreeBSD version.   
The rest of the devices on the box appear to work.

Getting a supported external RAID controller leaves you limited choices.
