OK, so this one makes the second (black) pcie x16 slot happy:

[ 6.128034] 0000:02:00.0: eth2: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection

I tested by copying a large (400M) file at wirespeed from both of those interfaces.
I also have an old 3com nic in this machine, in one of the PCI slots (the one
closest to the edge). I also copied that large file from that nic, without
However, I got this after having the machine up for a while:
[ 999.664992] Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason 00.
[ 999.665144] Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason a1.
[ 999.665147] You have some hardware problem, likely on the PCI bus.
[ 999.665149] Dazed and confused, but trying to continue
[ 999.667309] Do you have a strange power saving mode enabled?
[ 999.667309] Dazed and confused, but trying to continue
This was right after I did
a couple times - but that may have been a coincidence.
