Strange : I've a MSI K8N Neo2 54G mobo (MSI-7025), which is also a NFORCE3 Pro 250 based mobo and installed the NForce drivers since day 1.

Is this something similar to the setup you've tested ?
What kind of problems did you encounter ? burnfailers, burning to slow (not 16x). program craches, BSOD, or anything else ?
Didn't you lose some performance after switching to default MS drivers ? Like HD transferrates, burst reads,.... ?
The problems you had make me curieus, because I might still encounter these too ... :eek: :eek:
