So the titles says it all. I am looking to buy this processor but I heard allot of negativity/warnings from some people about using it on a msi 970a-g43 motherboard.(The Fx- 8320 is listed a supported processor for this motherboard).

I don't know what to do.. what do you guys think?

My current build is:
CPU= fx-4100 3.6 ghz (overclocked to 4.05ghz with a stock cooler.)
Motherboard= msi 970a-g43
Graphic Card- EVGA 550TI 1 gb VRAM (changing it to MSI Gtx 760)
RAM= 8GB G-Skill 1333
Power supply= 650W corsair bronze

It should be heat-sinks for the VRM's but it should work great either-way.
Been using a 870 board for over 6 months with a moderate O.C. and have had no problems.

msi 970a-g43 < Very poor board for a FX8320.
