Check out the nvidia forums, there are loads of people with these corruption problems. Just do a search for "corruption" in the "nforce mobos" section and you'll see what I mean.
I'm not bodging anything up, this is a known problem that has plagued nforce since nf2. You might of just been lucky, or you aren't moving massive amounts of data at a time to cause the corruption to start.
Here is one of the longer threads concerned with it, it also outlines methods to test if your computer is suffering from this problem. It also notes that Maxtor drives in particular are prone to these problems with nforce chipsets.
