The apparent common occurence that triggers the silo overflows
is disk access, like during a build. My P233 didn't do this.
I would think that the faster athlon would get out of the way
sooner, not later, and not be blocking serial interrupts. I do
think that the priorities are such that the com ports are lower
than the ide ports on this board. I am not sure though, that the
asus triton II board was any different.  How about spl levels?
have they changed?
