At this point, it's definitely a hardware problem. Can I rule out a

Using the faster memory configuration (CS4-4-4-12), upped voltage to 2.0 V,
and put memory in second slot seems to have solved the problem. memtest86
finds no errors, and I was able to compile some large programs without any
trouble. All 3 of these changes seem to be required. The first memory slot on
the mobo appears to be bad.
