I have an Asus AM2 Mb which support ECC mem and at least with the Adaptec raid
card (aacd) the problem does not happen (when ECC support enabled) I did 10x
buildworld, ahc and mpt still same issue, first build cracks the data on

well indeed with less then 4G installed it works flawless, so the difference I
see is that former athln64 MBs had memory hole remap options or when 4Gig
installed they only gave 3.something to the OS even under amd64 - this is NOT
the case with the AM2 MBs which should support up to 8/16Mb onboard but wth
this amount freebsd amd64 does not even boot when a scsi adaptor is installed
