Which ones work best? Clover, Chameleon, Chimera (ie. a version of Chameleon), etc. Just curious what people are using with sucess. I'm using Chameleon.

Clover and Chameleon are the most common.

I haven't tried Clover yet, but the new one is 64 bit. Does it still support 32 bit in the new Clover? What does Clover have over Chameleon? Thanks Delta....

Use Clover rL1050, it has both 32 and 64 bit support.
Clover can run EFI on non- EFI bioses, and has loads of fixes inside.
Clover rL1050 makes it possible to run andy's kernels on FX !

I've run Chameleon with sucess on Phenom II x4, those bootloaders also emulate EFI on non EFI systems. I'm planning to get a FX with the Vishera core as it's a more effient cpu then Bulldozer or wait for a die shrink to the next generation.

that flexibility is coupled with the added complexity though

May be complex, but I'm used, in fact after much sweat in learning how to edit my DSDT, hardly use many options of Clover at most a patch here, an adjustment there and good.

The set up of the "config.plist"- file for "Clover bootloader", requires more knowledge about the built-in hardware specifications,
so it is for hackintosh beginners with a little difficulty - but solvable !
For Hackintosh beginners it is in my opinion, easier to use Chameleon bootloader.
I have made the best installation experience with Enoch bootloader:

You are not beginner, you just accustomed to use Chameleon.

Clover's config.plist is not needed to be filled by user. There are default settings.

I may agree that Clover has many features that not used by AMD users.
