Swap out with same motherboard. - Page 2

post #11 of 12
You know you can swap out motherboards with any other and just hit startup repair and it will autmatically find the drivers
Though like for like will not cause any issues.

Don't swap it out with the same mobo
That low end MSI mobo like all low end MSI AM3 mobos is known for failures. That particular one is NOT ready for 125W processors (to begin with) due to weak pisspoor VRM design. It is just going to "go poof" on you again. Don't waste your cash.

Can you provide more details about your "poof" situation? What clock speed/voltage on your processor?

You can swap to a different motherboard and not have to reinstall Windows - just drivers. I actually did that just now, swapping from 790X chipset motherboard to 990X chipset motherboard.
