Tried. No change.
Really, someone should refund/exchange the board. When you go through the forum, a good number is on the Asus, and many on the M3N78 PRO. I already wrote to Asus w.r.t. my problems, but in effect their answer was 'no chance'.

My other system is a Biostar (cough-cough) TF-7050, and it runs absolutely beautiful and stable; including sharing interrupts for nvidia and all (agreed, it needed a BIOS-flash). It runs for weeks without any segfault nor crash. This is why I bought the Asus: I wanted something even better. Alas, what I have now is crap. If someone wants to swap, I'll swap anytime and throw in a drink, nevermind the Asus was some 30$ more expensive.
Since it seems neither Nvidia nor Asus are willing to actually concede that there is a problem at combining both their products, as of now I can only discourage buying either.
