Its more likely that you need to change your memory configuration,
The socket 939 3800+ is using a 128 bit memory bus.
www.abit.com.tw states that the AV8 board is socket 939.
I would use 2 or 4 non-ecc memory Dimms from the approved list:
Using 3 Dimms is not going to work !
You need to place equal number of Dimms in both memory-banks,
One in a blue slot and one in purple slot according to the image
on Abits website.
Its probably better to continue this discussion here:
This mailinglist is supposed to address software issues in the
Freebsd AMD64 port.
