* I found optimum read and write performance using 2 of these cards with 4 SSD. I created 1 raid0 device per card then software raid 0 across the top in Linux. This gave me 760MB/s read and about 550MB/s write."
Its OK though, I dont drink.

I looked into upgrading just my motherboard ... Well at least pricing them up for a board with SATA III controllers. Those things cost a bomb! ... I'm talking 150 - 165.

Now im aware that's not actually that much for a decent board(paid around that for mine)but Bear in mind i was looking to upgrade just for the SATA III ports.

There are a lot of X58 boards with additional onboard controllers but as you know now, they suck

I have a SATA 3 capable board but no intensions of using that controller. So SATA 3 is still one of main reasons to upgrade for me. Unfortunately, Intel crippled X79 so I lost interest in that platform
I think X79 is a disappointment in a lot of areas.

won't work, not a single x58 boards supports sata3 native, all of them use some crappy third party controller.
