cool but no one owns a FM2+ board and their FM2 boards are extremely flaky on the VRM side that i doubt anyone would risk their boards when they would burn out even at stock clocks and volts

you're really underestimating those who just like producing big numbers on their chips, even if it means shuffling though several of them.

competition is for asrock FM2 owners not MSI. still there is quite a few that are still using asrock, just learn not to stress the board in any way. I still own a asrock FM2A75M-ITX R1 which is known to be a flamer

perhaps, just that your every day user would prefer to keep their boards.

tbh i wouldn't mind sacrificing my board if they released their FM2+ boards today

Once I get my A10 (should be here any day now) I'll be able to do it

If they allow discrete GPUs then why don't they also allow the A8 series APUs?

i'm surprised they allow dedicated GPU. its barely promoting the A10

it makes more sense to overclock the A10's GPU for 3d mark competition rather then vs guys with full atx boards and quad CF 7970
