9650SE with 8 ports on a couple servers running CentOS 5 64 bit. Pretty 
heavily used database servers, lots of bursts of disk activity. No 
problems so far. I'm using the binary driver provided by 3ware.

I'm testing now the 16 port version for newer servers, no problems there 
either (but not much usage yet, of course).
