Pros: All cons as I couldn't get my machine to boot with this card in.
Cons: Beware of firmware or software based hard drive controllers. I learned the hard way that these are not compatible across all systems as they do required motherboard CPU/Memory resources to operate. I would not even bother with it and just bite the bullet and go with a true Hardware based controller with its own ROC and onboard memory. Not only will compatibility be more than likely, but you will see drive performance increases especially in a RAID 5 or greater and less system resources being consumed by drive processing.
My Gigabyte EP45-UD3P motherboard is not compatible with this card. Error as shows...
