Has anyone else been having difficulty with the built in network controllers on this thing? I'm about to lose it with this build.

I can't even begin to start to overclock until I can fix these driver issues. I've been through many different driver revisions (uninstalling/reinstalling drivers) I've even gone to the point of buying a separate network card to see if I can isolate the problem. And I don't know if it's just my bad luck but even that gave me trouble and I had to uninstall it.

I remember back in the day it used to be an issue what pci slot you had your sound card in as it would cause IRQ conflicts. I've tried putting the soundcard in the top and bottom pci slots but I still get random lock ups and BSOD's. I've re-installed the
OS several times with several different hardware configurations and it seems I'm still running into the same issues.

Things will run great for a a while and then boom it all goes to hell. I've been at this for two weeks now and 'im at my wits end. This is the second board that I'm on as I had to RMA the first because it blew up on me.

And another thing about this board. I spent $400.00 on this RAM and I can't reset the defaults in bios and get back in to increase the voltage to 2.3? After spending that much on the RAM I had to go out and spend more for the cheapest module I could find in order to get back into the bios to set it to boot from the good stuff. I feel violated.

If anyone has any suggestions here I would really like to here them.

Also, I've eliminated the CPU and RAM as potential problems. Orthos runs great and memtest runs with no errors. I can play COH with everything maxed out for hours on end with no issues, go to sleep for the night and wake up to an unresponsive machine every single morning. Maybe it's afraid of the dark.

Event manager, for what it's worth, either records a driver error for the D-link card or a driver error for the nvidia ethernet controller depending on which one is active.
