(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" apparently. 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.
