I am beginning to suspect a power supply type of problem, may be under powered (currently 550W with scsi dds tape, 2 x 320GB disks, sata dvd, floppy, internal memory card reader).
More investigation needed.
Finally appear to have nutted this one out. Not all DDR2 800 memory is created equal. After a lot of testing and all sorts of odd results I swapped out the originally supplied DDR2800 and put Kingston DDR2800 memory and we now appear to be flying. Clue was that although the originally supplied memory was supposed to be DDr2800 the BIOS would only ever enable it as 667. Any attempt to try to change it BIOS rendered the system unbootable.
Testing in some different systems now seems to work fine.
I guess this is the price for being on the leading edge of hardware.
Thanks for those that provided feedback.
