Which chipset?  Silicon Image has made more than one SATA chipset. The
SiI 3112 has been condemned around here as being a buggy piece of crap,
but I haven't seen any such comments about the later SiI 3114, which is
the one that all Tyan's dual-Opteron boards seem to use.
(I haven't seen much in the way of comments at all about the SiI 3114,
neither positive nor negative, which leads me to believe it works OK,
but without spectacular performance, but that is just my guess.)
