Just a heads-up, I was reading reviews for the MSI 970A-G43 motherboard and people are stating that this board runs VERY hot. Some people have stated that even running a fan directed at the northbridge doesn't even help. There's usually a reason why Fry's discounts certain motherboards. I got the MSI 970 gaming motherboard a few weeks ago from them. It has been a complete headache. My computer BSODs itself so often. Sometimes the computer won't even turn on (no lights, no fans spinning, just nothing) and I have to jump the CMOS pins to even enter the BIOS. I'm starting to think that MSI is a crap brand.

probably not the best for a massive OC, but then you knew that - reviews on Amazon [amazon.com] are much better - so it's hit or miss, I've got an older FX23A board with the same complaints - hasn't smoked yet

The problems seems not to be with even OC'ing. It gets very hot at stock and BSOD's at stock. Again, I have the MSI Gaming motherboard from FRY's which is a much higher end MSI AM3+ board which I got for like $30 AR. I have ram and a PSU from another build that I'm using in that PC. Both of those items worked fine in the other build. The ram is on their tested memory module sheet on their website. I've changed so many settings in the BIOS and it just fails to even run at the default ram settings. MSI is probably very hit or miss. The funny thing is that I often read reviews on newegg and I'm always like: "Damn, so many computer nerds who don't know how to build a PC". This is my first motherboard I've ever got that doesn't work well at all. I've built so many PCs. I must have been lucky all of these years. My luck has ran out! Should I test my luck again with this motherboard? Big Grin

I purchased the 970A-G43 on a previous deal. I have stressed it using burn in tests for several days. I had no issues. Temps were elevated but never to the point of causing a shut down or issues. I dropped in a AMD Athlon II X4 630 chip (95W). Maybe the issues is with the higher wattage or overclocks. I am glad I took the chance and ignored the bad reviews.

It's a pretty awful board even for stock-speeds on the 6/8 core FX's due to how bad the VM's are, if you bundle it with a FX 4--- though you shouldn't run into any throttling issues at least.

With stock speeds you can actually undervolt the FXs to achieve decent results if needed, when you OC you may have exercise more care. I've run the 125W x6 Thubans on similar boards w/o issues.

Quick question on the Mobo deal. My email from Frys says I have to call their phone support to use the code online, do I do this today or wait till the deal goes live tomorrow? Unfortunately we do not have FRYs within several hundred miles.

Yes. I got one fore $10 on Black Friday and was able to use it with a T-Mobile sim using the instructions here [xda-developers.com]. Remember to re-boot when it says. When I forgot that step, it did not work.
