[GURU3D] MSI announces full compatibility with future AM3+ processors [Upadated 4/8] - Page 7

The problem is the heat sink doesn't contact the VRM's correctly. I put a thermometer probe on each VRM, and only the 2 furthest away from the NB stayed below 50*C, the other 3 were in the 60's and the board shut down. I removed the crappy rubber thermal pad, and replaced it with some thicker ones.. I also remove the contact plate on the heat sink, lapped the plate top and bottom and lapped the heatpipe+heatsink. Then I glued the heatsick back on with some Arctic Silver thermal adhesive. That got all 5 VRMs below the 50*C mark.
Some of the boards listed, like mine, have no heatsinks on the vrms at all.

Gigabyte will have to be on board, they have revisions with the am3+ socket so the bios for those will work. Who else is left really?

All of you fail to understand that say BD can go in a MSI 890fx the 8 core would most likely work fine. Now if you overclocked maybe not so much but I bet 90% of the people that buy MSI boards don't overclock them. You all act like so many people overclock a lot of people don't so all will most likely be fine. Have you ever seen a MSI 890fx or 790fx blow up with just a normal even 140W cpu on here no Its when people push 1.5 to 1.55 volts. I took my MSI 790fx heat sinks off made sure they where making contact well and have been running 1.56 volts in the bios for ever a year now. I don't no I'm not a brand guy but people fail to understand they only have to make the boards at the most take 140W overclocking is at your own risk if you lie to them or not when it blows up thats on you.

And the 890FX GD65 is 8+2 power phase with heatsinks screwed on.

This being said, for bd to fit in the current 8xx line, it would have to be
-1 pin...
YES the CPU would have to be -1 pin!

Jf has confirmed that is not going to happen!

That is what I was saying, that and I feel bad for him having to repeat him self over and over again.

so go all you want! I hope it hurts!
HUH? What are you smoking? Where in the hell did I say ANYTHING about pin count? I am supporting JF, not against him in anyway. Please RE-READ what I wrote. Also, just because BD might fit and boot, does not mean that it will work with all the features that it can run on the AM3b/9xx platform. As I have said before, and others, is that the blame will goto AMD when BD does not work as well on AM3 as it could on AM3b. Hence why AMD is not supporting BD on AM3.

Thank you, but it's only a matter of time. They wouldn't want to be left out and have their current users go elsewhere for there next purchase.

Already been covered and the consensus is that it will run fine at stock. Overclocking is a different story.
