Its heavily tied to certain motherboards. Some people found a
better PSU fixed it, others that altering memory settings
helped. And in many cases, taking it back and buying a different

Does anyone know *why* stuff breaks? surely VIA do as they have a fix
for (some, all?) cases of breakage?
My guess is its some kind of timing or near-miss on a signal edge, and
the bios changes relax things so you don't miss whatever it was you
