Ok, I cleaned the cards one more and atm there's only 1 card in the 
system. Blew out all dust (the motherboard arrived brand new yesterday, 
so probably not necessary), still the same probs. After heavy IO the 
card dies.
I plugged one of the cards back in the old motherboard and installed a 
backup vdr, no probs at all with that card. Everything else on the new 
mainboard works like a charm, so I doubt the board is broken.

Still looking for any other hints,

Matthias
