hi guys, i want to upgrade my CPU to fx 8350 pile driver but i have msi 890fx-Gd70 mobo and i want to know if anyone has try that on this mobo or is capable of handling that cpu. i have the lastest bios 1.0e
Your MSI 890FXA-GD70 - http://www.msi.com/product/mb/890FXA-GD70.html#/?div=CP... only lists Bulldozer (Zambezi) CPU's so until such time there's CPUID (microcode) support for AMD Piledriver's the new CPU would more than likely fail to post. So if and when MSI offers Piledriver support you must first flash you BIOS; use only M-Flash and never flash through an OS.
You might just have to buy a new Motherboard to upgrade.
why it's that ASRrock 890fx support 8350 CPU but not msi 890fx. msi needs to come out with bios update or they want us to buy another new board. if so i will not buy msi mobo but i will rather buy ASROCK OR GIGABYTE MOBO.
