I just purchased a K8SRE board and installed it in a system on March
4th.  I didn't try the AMD64 version of FreeBSD, but I was having
troubles getting the onboard Broadcom interface working.  I was able
to get it working by downgrading the bios from 2891_201 to 2891v100. 
I had been told that disabling ACPI would have worked, but in my case
it didn't.

It's somewhat annoying to flash the bios, but it may help.  After some
searching yesterday it appears that the interface _can_ be unstable
and cause crashes under heavy load.  I haven't had any crashes yet
