Plus I am sure there are many pre-B3 mother boards still running just fine too.

I don't think there are any issues in the hardware world that can compare to Bulldozer, save for Netburst or possibly the bug in the Phenom I's

They may have pulled random CPUs from the mix to test and they all worked fine too, but a higher than expected amount of what wasn't tested is having issues. Though that would take some bad luck or poor testing for that to happen.

I just don't see it going very well for AMD when they tell people to feed more power into their CPU or lower the clock to resolve the BSOD issue.

Oh, definitely, definitely, not a good thing at all considering all the rest. Let's see if this is also the reason there are so few for sale. Maybe they caught the problem and are trying to fix it.

There is a strange post at Anandtech saying they are working on a B3 stepping (a thread with the same info also exists here on OCN) but that we shouldn't wait for it, giving as an example the fact that it took AMD nine months to come out with the Phenom II C3 revision. It's a strange post considering people knew nothing about a C3 revision a few days after AMD launched the Phenom II C2, and the fact that Piledriver is supposed to come out in less than nine months, so where would that put the B3 revision release ?

IMHO, they should have just made a paper launch, with a select few hand picked CPUs handed out to the press, just like Nvidia did with the GTX480 and GTX470. That would buy them a bit more time.

As I said, whole new build.
