Exclamation Infinite Loop possible cause...

Just read a good thread over at Via Arena's Forum on the Infinite Loop issue. Seems one of the guys has been dogging this issue and he thinks the issue is directly related to the 3.3v line.
Root Cause: Load at 3.3V versus how many amps your PSU provides at 3.3V
His fix was to either increase the power to the 3.3v line by a bigger psu, or to decrease the power usage on the 3.3v line by removing some of the memory. Seems that some people have 'fixed' it by going from 512+ memory down to 256mb. This would explain why it's cross o/s, mobo mfg, chipset, etc.

Am I allowed to post a link to it here? If so, I will.
