I have a D975XBX2 Intel MB. It has a Marvell 88SE61xx Controller. This is a criminal chipset and is the worst SATA controller ever made with the worst drivers and if I was Pinochet for a day, I would throw the CEO of this company out of a C-130 at 20,000ft for all the hard drives and data loss this chipset causes.
This chipset is criminal.
Why dont Asus, Intel, etc, why dont they just solder 3ware or LSI or any decent non-FAKE-RAID (FRAID) chips on these motherboards? Why would a program manager ever choose an asic that has fake raid, is crap, has crap drivers and sucks?
