(following up/closing out the thread from last year on a more constructive note)

I recently had to replace my P6T-WS motherboard/CPU because it finally
bit the dust (it was 7 years old). I found a ASUS desktop board that
worked with the before mentioned LSI card -- ASUS Z170M-E D3. The
compatibility list didn't mention my LSI card specifically, but it
said that they validated the 9260-4i card, which was "close enough"

The card's detected properly at POST, it attaches in FreeBSD, and the
volume looks AOK. The only thing that's slightly annoying is that the
chipset does some silly things with the onboard graphics when I plug
it in initially (I believe it thinks it's a graphics card..), so I had
to tweak some BIOS settings.
