I was having mobo problems back about rc1 times, so I'm not able to
positively say that rc1 did/did not do it. I tried to make that
clear in a later message but must not have been. Motherboard, cpu,
memory and psu are all fresh now.

As this mobo contains the nforce2 chipset, now running the reverse
engineered driver, how far back can I go without running into
problems with it?
