I'll have to get back to you on the revision. We've been busting the balls
of our suppliers as we have only been able to see stable operation when
underclocking the RAM to 166. This is running with 4400+ processors
and 2Gb of RAM ( off tyan's recommended list ) using Windows XP.

The symptoms are just random reboots with crash logs indicated various
errors from memory issues to driver problems.

We also have had high amounts of total MB failures off the top of my
head about 10 and we only have 14 machines with this MB in.

The issues may be related only to the X2 CPU's Im not sure.
