Foxconn Bloodrage Marvell SATA Driver
The proprietary connector should in no way impede functionality or make the card "less good" but personally I find proprietary hardware which is needlessly proprietary to be less than desirable.
Bloodrage: SAS and other Raid configurations
For this portion of the review I went with Disturbed, Indestructible. The included audio daughterboard worked well for CD audio playback.
No hissing, popping or other distortion was heard. The recording was made with the Microphone Boost option disabled, then enabled.
The Microphone Boost option is found within the advanced menu under the microphone section within the Volume Control Menu. The included audio board proved to work very well.
The recording sample was not totally distortion free, but was audible with the microphone boost option enabled and disabled. Testing was also conducted using a Foxconn Bloodrage Marvell SATA SATA drive on all applicable controllers, and an EIDE drives connected in a primary slave configuration on the appropriate controller All drive benchmarks were done using the open source Iometer program.
This is a bit of an odd situation here. So that was done, but its results need to be taken with a grain of salt as the controller is no doubt not nearly the performer with SATA drives as it would be SAS drives.

Additionally in a direct comparison you are almost comparing apples and oranges between the Foxconn Bloodrage Marvell SATA drive types themselves. So results in this case have Foxconn Bloodrage Marvell SATA variables than usual. Bear this in mind when looking at them. The main benefit to testing the SAS controller in this way is to ensure that it did indeed function properly and that if you chose to use regular SATA drives with it, which I figure will probably be the norm if these ports get used at all they will function properly and you'll know what kind of performance you will get out of it compared to the JMicron or ICH10R controllers also found on this board.
To Foxconn's credit, the drive controllers worked fairly well. They gave me very few issues overall. With a single SATA drive it worked fine.
I'd set up the options and when it came time to hit "Y" to build the array, the software simply wouldn't do anything. I tried multiple keyboards to rule out that problem and that wasn't the issue.
I tried multiple times with a variety of options and nothing ever changed. This is a good thing as this doesn't always work as intended.

Interestingly enough, as you can see by the graphs above, there isn't a clear cut winner as far as performance goes between the onboard controllers. Everything is well implemented on the board and CPU usage is very low.

What's unusual here is the division of performance. This tells me that for an onboard solution, the Marvell SAS controller is actually very good for a solution that isn't a pure hardware driven one. The pin power connector is located behind the three DDR3 memory slots on the right hand side. This board only contains three slots to create one triple channel row.
Because this board is aimed for extreme users who will Foxconn Bloodrage Marvell SATA overclocking, memory is limited to one triple channel to help keep the memory signals clean when pushing higher speeds.
When it comes to keeping the whole thing cool, Foxconn has come up with a very elaborate heat-pipe assembly as well as some off-pipe heatsinks to keep things as cool as possible.
