Angelbird Wings x4, 32GB SSD donated

People at Angelbird and Cloudspecialists.net were kind enough to send us a Wings x4 PCI-Express SATA card with super-fast 32GB SSD memory onboard and space for 4 2.5″ SSD drives. Besides being a simple/cheapo SATA card, it seems to work great under Linux (which is worth mentioning), the controller is the Marvell 88SX7042 and supports up to 4 2.5″ SATA drives.
Mounting /var/tmp/portage on it is giving us a nice I/O boost.

Thanks Angelbird!
