I have a trusty 3ware 9650SE-4LPML that has served me well for many years, and I have no desire to upgrade it. I would, however, like to upgrade the aging AMD socket AM2 motherboard and CPU that hosts it. The problem is, I read of many people going through painful trial-and-error to find motherboards that work with these controllers. They'll plug into the socket, but the card's not recognized, the machine crashes, the drives aren't recognized, etc. Apparently some motherboards expect only a graphics card to be plugged into their >x1 slots. Of course, many of these storires are now also several years old.
What recently modern motherboard are you using with your 3ware controller? I'm especially interested in any AM3+ boards with onboard video that happen to work.
