ASUS U3S6 TRUE USB 3.0 & TRUE SATA 6GB SUPPORT CONTROLLER - Moncton Computer Parts For Sale - Kijiji Moncton Canada.

If somebody wants me to pick it up and they pay shipping, I'd be willing.

I wouldn't call not being able to boot with any of the motherboard sata ports used as being "trouble free".... quite frankly, I'm curious as to why this is in demand.

answer is simple sswilson : upgrade. nForce 4 is not the friendliest of chipsets for working with a SSD, doesn't even have AHCI mode, only raid, and the raid mode doesn't allow you to hook a single device like other , more modern nvidia chipsets will allow. In plus, old pcie 1.0/1.1 interface has only 250MB/s on a single lane which is inadequate for a SATA III SSD. My SSD attached now on a Silicon Image 3132 card is only doing 120MB/s read. Adding one of the sata III add in card would boost to around 200MB/s, while the Asus U3S6, assuming that it splits the 4 lanes equally between the NEC USB chip and the Marvell sata controllers, would give 500MB/s bandwith for the SSD. That is the only reason i Need it. People with SATA 3 on the mobos or with modern mobos having pcie 2.0 should not need this card, is just for upgrading old platforms.
