May very well be a hardware design flaw. The pro2-a appears very carefully
engineered to keep most traces short and they went through a lot of effort
to keep traces the same length.

The only stability problems I've had were overloading the 300W PS with a
geforce2, all 6 PCI slots filled, 3 HD, 1 CDRW, and one DVDrom. Removing
one of the drives (CDRW or DVDrom) lowers the power consumption back into
the realm of 100% stability.

Next on my shopping list is a 450W PS :-)

Has anyone tried swapping buffered/unbuffered DIMMs to see if it made a
