Hi,

I have been looking at the freebsd hardware notes and can not work out if this board is supported. I am mainly interested in the SATA controllers which are the

Southbridge
6 xSATA 3 Gb/s ports
Intel® Matrix Storage Technology Support RAID 0,1,5,10 Marvell 88SE6121
1 x UltraDMA 133/100/66 for up to 2 PATA devices
Silicon Image Sil5723 (Drive Xpert technology)

More info is here

http://ca.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=709&l4=0&model=2312&modelmenu=2

If this board is not supported can someone suggest something as I am a total newbie.

Thanks,
Wags

Intel P45 should be supported, but you will propably have problems with Marvell 88SE6121 and/or Silicon Image Sil5723 (Drive Xpert technology).

I have the "plain" p5q and works great with 8.0 beta3 amd64 (i have 2TB of data on zfs).

From a quick online comparison they both use the same controllers.
