No sorry. I've seen some cases where a framebuffer console breaks a serial console.

Good news, sort of. I ran X to see if anything happened and I got this in the serial console:

Code:
HARDWARE ERROR
CPU 0: Machine Check Exception:                4 Bank 4: b200000000070f0f
TSC 886dce63f5
This is not a software problem!
Run through mcelog --ascii to decode and contact your hardware vendor
Kernel panic - not syncing: Machine check
Also, turns out SysRq is alive after the crash, and it works except for the reboot/poweroff part, which prints "resetting" but does nothing:

Code:
 <6>SysRq : Emergency Sync
SysRq : Emergency Remount R/O
SysRq : Emergency Remount R/O
SysRq : Resetting
Hope this helps!

Actually, that MCE is a known issue, and is a BIOS bug. You'll need to report this to Asus, I'm afraid.

I've got the same problem minus any output to the serial console. Motherboard is a Tyan Thunder K8WE. Running 103 BIOS resulted in hang. Updated to 104 and now it reboots when X starts. Worked just fine with a Quadro FX 4500 ;(

I take it you've not got a known problem with this motherboard?

There is a known BIOS bug with many CK804 chipset based motherboards. We're attempting to work around it in a future driver release.
