Thus spake Greg 'groggy' Lehey (grog at [04/04/05 20:40]:
: The moral of the story is, I suppose, "don't buy the MSI K8T
: Master2-FAR".  I was warned about the motherboard before I bought it,
: but at the time it was the only game in town.  Now I know of other
: places with (hopefully) better boards.

I'd like to second this.  I have it, and it's caused me *no* end of memory
issues.  I've gone through ~6GB of 512MB and 1GB kits from OCZ which *all*
test fine when they do them, but I've only gotten one current 1GB kit to
work properly on my board.  And I can't use ECC; FreeBSD and memtest86+ both
spontaneously reboot when it's enabled.

Too bad the purchase cost broke me, otherwise I'd buy a new board.
