I googled a bit and found somebody called "Jonathan A. Kollasch". He
wrote that he has a board with the same north- and southbridge. This
message was from 12.04. at 23:06. If anybody has his message (subject:
"SB850 SERR# routinh (almost off-topic)") please re-send it to me
because his e-mail isn't shown in the mailing list archives found by
google but I would like to speak to him. :)

I don't think so. I know all the documentation is there but my coding
skills are extreme poor.

I would buy a secound chip if I could help with it, but I don't think I
could do more then testing.

What is EC? Is this a chip called "UCC" by AsRock?
