I agree on the motherboard and peripheral chipset issue.

This, and the last generation AMD quad/six core motherboards all seem to use 
the AMD SP56x0/SP5100 chipset, which I can't find much information about 
support on for either OpenSolaris or FreeBSD.

Another issue is the LSI SAS2008 chipset for SAS controller which is frequently 
offered as an onboard option for many motherboards as well and still seems to 
be somewhat of a work in progress in regards to being 'production ready'.
