MSI 970A-G43

A mainstream motherboard with a brand new AMD 970/SB950 chipset. Supports high-clocked RAM modules and the parallel connection of two AMD Radeon graphics cards. The board is aimed at computer gamers and people building high-performance PC systems, who are planning to build a new machine with the upcoming high-end octa-core AMD FX series processors.

The motherboard construction uses only capacitors with high dielectric strength, providing longer service life and a more stable power supply under high temperatures in comparison to conventional electrolytic capacitors. Another interesting feature of this model is its unique OC Genie II function, which allows you to perform automatic overclocking in a single second and promises to increase performance by up to 248%! It also unlocks the hidden cores in the current-gen processors which have backwards compatibility with the board.

Owners of smartphones and tablets will also appreciate the unique i-Charger function which enables quick charging of selected USB devices via a USB port. Another interesting detail is the APS (Active Phase Switching), a smart and handy feature that automatically monitors the processor performance load and regulates the power supply to match it, raising its energy efficiency. Last but not least, there is also the 3TB+ Infinity function, which breaks the current BIOS limits and allows 64-bit operating systems to boot from a 3 TB HDD.

So far, the maximum satisfaction .. Stable a cheap board

I am satisfied with the board, but there is one big BUT. Beware of uncooled VRM! When large amounts of (+ 80W) is warm enough, I'd burn up. FX-8320@4.20GHz full load VRM = 95 ° C (and it got pretty well ventilated cabinet). So if you want this record, you will need to tune the voltage regulator cooling or use a CPU with a lower TDP. This is a big shortage and therefore I can not give more than poor 3 stars. Šetříš the wrong place at MSI.
