I have sucessfully used that motherboard with FreeBSD 9 and the mps 
driver. The mfi driver found on the LSI site does not support this 


PS: My experiments were with the X8DTL-6F motherboard and Supermicro 
chassis with E16 expander. There is no reason the HBA chip in the single 
processor motherboard to be different.
