1 out of 5 eggs Installed BIOS Not Compatible w/ AMD FX Processors 11/03/2011

This review is from: MSI 970A-G45 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Great price

Cons:

Installed BIOS not compatible w/ AMD FX processors (4100). Need v1.2, but to flash BIOS you need an AM3 CPU...so I'm out of luck.

Other Thoughts:

Long time MSI customer, but this experience was very disappointing and not expected. MSI-run forums were helpful in pinpointing the problem.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued MSI Customer,

We would like to apologize for the issue you have experienced with this particular MB. Please email me directly via USUserSupport@msi.com your MB's serial number and your complete contact information, subject heading "EAH970A-G45". I would like to help you get this resolved.

Best Regards,
User Support
