Oops - deleted my original post as I didn't think I'd be the one replying to 
it.

Not BIOS revision
Not RAID firmware revision

memtest86+ errors at the end of memory, but passing DELL memory diagnostics, 
of a DELL Poweredge 2650, is a known problem it seems.

Looks like it is a manufacturing fault, that can be worked around by disabled 
USB in the BIOS.

Be interested to know DELL's view on this, the bug reports claims they were 
silent on the issue.
