MSIs AM3+ mainboards support the latest AMD Vishera processors. In support of this fact is the recent overclocking record on the MSI 990FXA-GD80 which hit the 8.37 GHz mark with an FX-8350 processor, making it the fastest AMD FX-8350 in the world.

This post is unexpected. I bought a 990FXA-GD80 V2 and it can't even run an 8350 at stock settings without errors in P95 after a few seconds. Upping the voltage to 1.45V can't even solve the problem at 4 GHz. Mind you this is an 8350 that happily did 72 hours of P95 at 4.3 GHz / 1.350V just fine on a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3. The MSI has over 50mV of droop at modest voltages and no configurable LLC options. It also doesn't expose the CPU's ECC capabilities unlike most boards.
