I've removed two sticks from channel B, and just running with the matched
pair in channel A.  The java install has been running for almost an hour straight.
When I get back over to the server room, I'll power it off and try the same pair
in channel B to see how it goes.

Thanks for the SPD tip - I'll check that out as well.
