You might want to try relaxing the memory timing in the BIOS. In particular, try adding some cycles to CAS Latency. I've had a couple of systems with ECC RAM that had excessive ECC errors with the default RAM timing that got much better when I increased CAS Latency. You might also want to try rigging an extra fan to blow on the RAM and/or chipset. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
