I have not swapped memory modules for the Corsair ones yet
however I have pulled one stick of the Gskill ram out to leave
6 gig now. Will see if I can reproduce the lockup with the
6 gig and keep removing ram until something changes. I can
swap out the GSkill for the corsair during the weekend as
the other boxes are in use during the day.
I have left the X configuration as default. xorg.conf shows
vesa mode and the following modules (probably only used when
vncserver is running on localhost?):
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "VESA driver (generic)"
