I did the opposite yesterday - I updated my microcode to the latest one 
from MSI (though the AMD update it contains is from the summer I belive, 
depsite the BIOS only comming out a couple of weeks ago). Am running 
12-STABLE on there, and will see how long it lasts.

Only got to do this yesterday as havent been near the machine for weeks. 
I didnt adjust any RAM timings and left everything at the default after 
the BIOS update.

but until yesterday it has locked up about every couple of days :-(
