Jan 14, 2013, 2:16 PM
A friend of mine has a 990FX AM3+ motherboard running a Phenom ii 955, he has just ordered a FX-8350 CPU. Do I need to reinstall the OS? or will I just be able to change the CPU?

Just make sure the BIOS is updated to the right version that support new CPU before making the switch.
