I am running 9.0-RELEASE on an ASUS P8H61-M LE/USB3 with a corei5

Having the same audio and LAN chips I can say they work. Had some
trouble getting the audio working to start with, vaguely recall it was
something with the generic sound detection didn't pick the right driver,
once I enabled one specific sound device I haven't had trouble (also
that was back in rc3). Only using stereo speakers so can't vouch for any
surround features. Add snd_hda_load="YES" to /boot/loader.conf

Using an Nvidia PCIe card - haven't tried the on-board video.
