I think it's worth mentioning that PCW magazine (UK) did a write-up on mbds in the August issue and came across startup troubles with boards from different makers. They found that there was memory compatibility problems across a wide range of different memory relevent to whether the PC3200 sticks involved were to the latest Jedec standard or not, older sticks not being tightly controlled. Quote, "After some intensive analysis we pinpointed the memory as the problem". They used Crucial memory but found the trouble was hit and miss with whatever sticks they used. When Crucial shipped there latest Jedec standard 3200 (is it out yet??) they got no probs. It would show that my problems are leaning towards my older memory as against my Antec PSU with its 5v @ 40A. Not a definitive statement but food for thought.
