I have installed 9.0-RELEASE on this motherboard with the following
brief results:

$ cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm: 64bit 2009061500/amd64)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <HDA Realtek ALC892 PCM #0 Analog> (play/rec) default
pcm1: <HDA Realtek ALC892 PCM #1 Analog> (play/rec)
pcm2: <HDA Realtek ALC892 PCM #2 Digital> (play)
pcm3: <HDA Realtek ALC892 PCM #3 Digital> (play)
pcm4: <HDA Intel Cougar Point HDMI PCM #0 DisplayPort> (play)
$

The devices /dev/dsp0, /dev/dsp1 even play to different audio outputs
(front panel and rear panel). 

However, there are some more or less serious problems:

1. The "green" console screensaver does not poweroff the monitor. It just
blanks the screen and sometimes displays white rubbish thereon.

2. It looses one of the HDDs during intensive read/write operations:

Jun  2 00:55:33 vas kernel: ahcich1: Timeout on slot 4 port 0
Jun  2 00:55:33 vas kernel: ahcich1: is 00000000 cs 000000c0 ss 000000f0 rs 000000f0 tfd c0 serr 00000000 cmd 0000c617
Jun  2 00:56:48 vas kernel: ahcich1: Timeout on slot 0 port 0
Jun  2 00:56:48 vas kernel: ahcich1: is 00000000 cs 00000001 ss 00000000 rs 00000001 tfd c0 serr 00000000 cmd 0000c017
Jun  2 00:57:20 vas kernel: ahcich1: AHCI reset: device not ready after 31000ms (tfd = 00000080)

I shall of course check the HDD and cable, but they worked flawlessly on
the previous system.

3. I had to run xorg in VESA mode, because xf86-video-intel-2.7.1_4 does
not recognize the video chip on the motherboard on question. That is a
pain! mplayer is incredibly slow on all movies. It complains that "your
system is too slow to play this" and gives a plethora of obscure
recommendations, but I basically thought that the sheer CPU power should be
sufficient to play the video. Is there a solution which "just works"?
Replacing mplayer with something else? Buying a video card (what model)?
