I'm waiting for a new motherboard and memory as there is a hardware
problem, especially noticeable during a kernel build, make && make
modules_install a number of times gets it built and it boots. Odd
problems appear elsewhere also.
You have tried a new PSU (or a swap from another system) _before_
condemning the mobo...?

My experience of faults like this is that the PSU is often the culprit
(and cheap and easy to swap!)

The PSU was tested out on another box with similar hardware and extra
cards. I have had a number of PSU's fail, some within a few months of new.
An upgrade was on the cards anyway and all the bits including a 600W PSU
were delivered 20 minutes ago.

New PSU, same problem, so it's CPU/Mem/Motherboard hardware problem as
suspected. I can play with those bits when I have the new bits installed.
