Other Thoughts:

I bought this board for a friend's install, he initially wanted a 9370 vishera cpu on it but after hours in forums and on MSI's web site I couldn't verify that MSI sanctioned that CPU on this board. Whether a cpu will work on a certain motherboard has a lot to do with the BIOS on the motherboard and if it's not on their sanctioned list sometimes it just won't work even if all the bus speeds and power requirements match. Sometimes companies don't get around to testing everything for some time after it comes out. Most people are not going to build with a $250.00 cpu right away, they'd wait for the price to come down. When the board showed up we kept researching but really couldn't verify it would work so we exchanged for a gigabyte ud5 which does officially sanction the vishera 9370. I would have loved to keep this I've built many MSI and they are great boards. After we rma'd I got a email from a forum moderator that he knows for a fact it will work...ack. But definetly do your own research if you want to put a 9000 series on this board, All the 8000 series are fully tested with this board if you don't mind going a bit slower.
