Asus M2NPV-VM Motherboard – Seriously Broken

I’m usually an Asus fan and I’ve bought several of their mother boards so when they came out with the M2NPV-VM for the new AM2 socket AMD processors I thought it would be a great board. Boy was I wrong. I think it’s a bios problem but this is at least the third bios and the current version 0303 is very broken. It won’t run the current 2.6.18rc4 Linux kernel and it is very picky about memory.

I bought the OCZ Gold Edition high performance ram and it’s clear that this memory is incompatible. It’s supposed to run at DDR2 800 speeds but even at DDR2 400 it still has memory errors. I’m hoping a future bios will fix this. Asus – you disappoint me. Fix your product!
