The other module refuses to fail. 12 hours and counting. With UDMA33.
At this point I consider the pair of motherboards the most likely suspect.
Whether it is a pair of defective boards, or a real design flaw in the
VD133PL or the VIA 133Pro itself, I don't know.
But I'm losing my patience with these systems and need one of them deployed
yesterday, so I am going to see if I can get the computer store to let me
try a newer i815 board in these guys before I buy it.
