Hey all,

I'll be upgrading my motherboard to a AM3+ by ASRock and a FX-6300

Can I just use like Driver Sweeper to remove the old drivers prior to putting in the new motherboard or should I really do a full reformat of Win7? I'd rather not reformat if possible....but if it's pretty much necessary, oh well.

No you will be needing a reformat for sure. How can your old core kernal drivers match with your new one ? If the windows commences at all , there would be random crashes.
