Correction- make sure it isn't a budget model motherboard from MSI. Their better model mobos (at least intel side) don't have this issue. But yea I got as far as seeing GD45 and knew it was blue smoke

It still doesn't justify their mid range boards having **** quality.

MSI boards all-around on AMD seem to have substandard quality. Even the two new 8+2 MSI boards have seen VRM failures. Some boards are definitely better than the others though; many of the higher end boards with Driver MOSFETs hold up better than the lower end ones with NIKOS MOSFETs, heatsinked or not. These problems usually only happen on high TDP processors in any case.

Hey guys thanks for your help, i got the same board today and put everything back together but now nothing comes up on screen when I turn the computer on. All the pins from the power supply to mobo are in as is the 6 pin to the pci express card. I know its not the graphics card because i've tried it with another one and still nothing comes up on the monitors

any clues?
