You need the snd_ich.ko and snd_pcm.ko modules to load.  As root do 
kldload snd_ich.ko, repeat till finished.  Use kldstat to see what is 
loaded.  To have them autoload add these to /boot/loader.conf as 
snd_ich.ko_load="YES" and snd_pcm.ko_load="YES".  I have the epox 
8rda3i, it has hardware sournd but I am not sure if it is official 
soundstorm or not.
