I've been using SATA drives since Breezy, but the last two systems
I've built had Intel motherboards. I have heard problems occasionally
with various chipsets. Ironically, I ran into an issue with good-old
IDE in the last system I built last weekend (a dual-core server with a
relatively recent motherboard using the 965 Express chipset), while
the SATA part worked fine. I can't make any promises, but in general
they have worked for me.
