Impatience is NOT my friend right now. I'm waiting for, um, a particular set of parts to finally get shipped by FrozenCPU. They're holding up my parade!
To cut the suspense (haha, as if there was any), I'll go ahead and tell y'all: Yes, I'll be resurrecting the CFX3200. There are some reports that suggest that, while the CFX was definitely a challenge to get stable even on stock clocks with XP, the board's problems were somehow "cured" when switching up to a newer Windows OS.
Yeah, it's a goofy kind of story, I know, but I'm now able to find out whether or not this is actually true. To my mind it makes zero logical sense (I mean, if it's a hardware-related issue, how could different software magically solve it, right?), but there are enough reports of this phenomenon that I'm willing to try.
Couldn't hurt anything, I figure.
