This is my board
This is the link the the card, it shows that it is the ASM1061 Chipsethttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6816124045
I didn't end up getting it, although some in the reviews section said that they got it to work on their boards by installing it first and letting Windows 7 install the drivers for it, then shutting down and transferring the boot drive over to the controller card. I don't know why this board wouldn't though, I've had way older boards boot to IDE controller add-in cards
. I guess the only way to know for sure was to get it first to test it. What I was hoping was to raise my current 250 MB/s times up into the 400+ MB/s ranges to speed up this board a bit since I am using a SATAIII SSD in it. Seems a shame to be bottlenecked by the board, even though it is still faster than when it was booting to the SATAII HDD.
I had $20 sitting in my PP account and it looked like a good use for it at the time, but I ended up getting busy last nite looking for a used car on CL (mine needs a fuel pump among other things and isn't worth sinking that $700 into when it also needs an A/C and heater core replaced
). While doing that I forgot to go back to the Egg and get it, it was the last ShellShocker of the day so I had until midnight but had other things on my mind.
