Re: [vox-tech] Problem with Gigabyte 890FX, Phenom II, and Kubuntu

Check the system event logs in the motherboard bios. Sometimes listed
under SEL. Otherwise, I would stress test the machine. I used to run ctcs
to burn in systems for a cluster I worked on for LLNL. It does memory,
io, and cpu stress tests.


You could also try lm-sensors to monitor the hardware.
