This is very interresting. I have a gigabyte X48 board, and everything
works perfect, however, in memtest86+ i get thousands of errors in the
range 0-0.9mb. I am certain my ram is fine, i've tried it in other
computers, and reversed. I've run dozens of stress tests within my
booted linux, no trouble, also the userspace memtester (allthough im
aware it wont actually ever get to grab offending addresses).

Any thoughts?
