Replying to my old message. Yes the mobo crashed like
crazy and was very unstable. I returned it back to the
store and got a replacement, exactly the same thing.
Which, unlike the previous one, works flawlessly so
far - at least I can't reproduce any crashes anymore.
More -- CPU temperature, which - according to the
lm_sensors values, was jumping somewhere between
40C and 65C, is now at 24C at idle and 35C under
high load. CPU headsink is MUCH cooler on this
mobo, while the fan is working exactly the same.
And no more themp jumps as before. So it turns out
I just had a bad (defected) mobo, nothing to do with
kernel.... Oh well.
(But BIOS on this mobo is a bit crappy still. Not
fatal but not nice either.)
