Notes

Drivers for sound are available, but after installation of the Realtek HD drivers, you need to edit or make the file hda_intel.conf in /etc/modprobe.d/
Next, add the next line to it:
options snd-hda-intel model=targa-8ch-dig probe_mask=1

Save, Reboot and you should have sound, also from the internal speakers

Summary

Works like a charm. It's fast, unbelievable stable, and i achieve higher download speeds with the wireless adapter, then under Windows 7 with the most recent drivers.
