    re: not too late
    I was referring to the fact that your mobo failed with two different sets of memory and that no further testing was needed to confirm that the mobo was bad. Ya, I know that both sets of memory could have been faulty, but you got identical results with both sets.

    re: new cpu cooler
    I think I read on the XS forum that the rev: 1.1 mobo involved rotating the NB heat sink cover 180 degrees for better clearance with cpu coolers. Before you buy a new cpu cooler, verify that there won't be any clearance issues with your mobo.

    This thread has been quite a ride! We've provided a lot of good info for others. My only regret is that nobody commented on my (off beat) humor in a couple of posts.

    Good luck. I can't wait to see your results with a new mobo.

    Problem solved!!

    Got the new MB and ran Memtest86 on channel A (slots 1 & 3) for 6+ passes with no errors.

    Ran Memtest86 on channel B (slots 2 & 4) and let it go overnight (29 passes and 18 hours) with no errors.

    Also got a retention bracket for the CPU heatsink / fan. MUCH MUCH easier to install!!

    Used the following settings in BIOS:
