I have some Infos for you... 

Our Sponsoring Dual-Opteron has a Tyan Thunder K8S with an AMD 8110.
I had only Problems with this Board (and older BIOS 1.07) if
MemScrubbing and Chipkill are enabled. If both is disabled and ECC
enabled I got no Problems. At least not with the newer BIOS 2.01I.
The changelog of this BIOS release does not tell very much, but there
are some configuration settings more available in this new version which
are not in the older version. Perhaps Mattias should update his BIOS
