I've recently bought a Koutech KW-5200 [1] and put it in my Qube2. This 
card uses the Silicon Image 3512 chip and works fine with the GENERIC 
configuration shipped with 5.0.2 and a 1.5TB disk attached. Could you 
post the dmesg output from your system?

However, I've bought this specific card to get USB support as well and 
(cross-)compiled a new kernel with USB (ohci/ehci) enabled. When using 
this kernel I get some strange memory corruption problems, but I need 
to further investigate to be sure that I haven't made some errors in 
the kernel config or other stupid things.
