I second the swap of memory to DDR333, if you look at a couple
of tests that have been performed, the difference DDR333 to DDR400 is a
couple of percent depending on what benchmark. Can you try it with
DDR33 4x256MB Registered ECC, two in each processors memory slots? I
have this config(but 4x512MB), all PCI slots full supporting 2TB of
RAID5 and RAID10 storage and the system is rock solid. There are known
problems with older chip revisions handling DDR400 in the Opteron
Processor forums, usually on 244 veriants though.
