I have been building my NAS box for quite a while now but have just been looking into the card I bought from trademe and it will not work with Freenas.
Can anyone recommend me a good 4 or more channel Sata2 raid card?

"Digitus" have a PCI SATA Raid card available. It has 4x internal SATA & 2x eSATA ports. Supports RAID 0,1,5 & 1+0. You are looking around $78 for the card (via Ascent). Not sure if it works with FreeNas.....

Chipset: Sil 3114

Hmm no, those chipsets are not the best to use with freenas.

Hmm have to check which version it is, and there is a warning on Freenas' forum but I cant read it.
