I am running dual 265s on a K8WE, it is quite flawless. I installed
with the standard netinst iso, the installation went w/o a hitch. I'm
running with a 2.6.12 something kernel that it installed with, and I
haven't had reason to upgrade. lm-sensors worked right out of the box
as well as the dual gigabit NICs.
