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.

I am certain the Vishera cpus require 900 series chipset, like 970 or 990 according to AMDs own website. Maybe the 890 thrown in too, check MSI site/boards maybe?

You might just have to buy a new Motherboard to upgrade.

Granted every Piledriver AM3+ MOBO I've seen (so far) has been paired with an AMD 9 Series Chipset. Also, the only info I've seen were pre-released slides showing AM3+ and 'AMD 9 Series Chipset'.

The only info on AMD's site I've found is vague - http://www.amd.com/us/press-releases/Pages/new-amd-fx-l... and http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/processors/amdfx...

So if there's official info limiting Piledriver's to AMD 9 Series Chipset's I haven't seen it ... yet. Certainly, I wouldn't be surprised.

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.
