I understand your point clearly. I am not saying you gave up too soon or made any mistakes in your troubleshooting steps. I was correcting the semantics of the discussions for future reference.
NOTE: I did some searching online and did read the thread you linked to...with someone else having a similar issue. The dmp files that he was getting referred to a memory issue. That basically means it is one of three things:
1. Bad memory
2. Bad motherboard
3. Incorrect timings/voltage etc for that specific memory in the BIOS
Points 2 and 3 could easily be "resolved" by getting a new motherboard, even though it might not have been necessary. I know he did in the end, but as I've been trying to say, there are things that weren't suggested in that thread that he could have checked first. I didn't see any discussions from that Jordan66 guy to say how he had his memory configured. It's very possible the board didn't pick up the settings from the SPD chips on the memory, and required them to be set manually, which he probably didn't know how to do.
Again, I am not trying to say you made a mistake. My "job" is to make sure factual information is posted so anyone reading this thread understands. There's a person in another subforum trying to upgrade a Gigabyte board to Windows 7 and is asking about drivers, since Gigabyte lists it is unsupported. Since that is an Intel-based board, he'll have no problems.
I will agree that there's little room to discuss anything because you have a new board, and from what I can read, it is running very well for you. That is a good thing, and does solve the problem.
Not to open a new can of worms, but that's one of the several reasons why I only use Intel processors and chipsets. Much better OS support!
