MSI 970A-G43 Plus AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 & SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Happy Camper, easy Install...mostly 04/09/2016

This review is from: MSI 970A-G43 Plus AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 & SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Other than Win 10 activation, I had no issues installing into an existing build of windows 10. Using paragons hard drive manager suite version 15 and there P2P Adjust OS Wizard. I was able to tell my existing Win 10 build to load new drivers for the new mother board and it booted right up. I installed a AMD Phenom II X4 965 and 8 gigs of ADATA XPG V1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model AX3U1866W4G10-DR with no issues. After 1st boot I loaded MSI's update software and it updated to all the latest drivers. Board runs smooth and has been running for about 10 ten days. Audio sounds fine also although I am just using an old set of logitech 5.1 speakers. Latest bios was installed when I received Motherboard.

Cons: Windows 10 will need to be reactivated after a motherboard change, If you have version 1511 or higher of win 10 you can use your old win 7 or 8 keys. This board and/or my version of win 10 would not accept these keys for some reason, I think it was more a problem with my insider build of windows than the motherboard, but I am unsure. This also could of been due to my utter lack of understanding of the new Windows UEFI secure boot mode that came out with win 8. After a few hours of tech support and googling I ran across a post about UEFI hard drive secure boot interfering with windows/os installs. After turning this feature off in my bios and rebooting I was able to activate windows with my original win 7 key. I later turned UEFI back on with no issues. I hope this helps someone!

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this board to anyone with AM3 or 3+ CPU

Pros: Easy Set up. Works well

Cons: Non so far

Other Thoughts: Plunged in. Connected my laptop to the wireless signal, opened web browser and the setup ran. I had it synced with my wireless network in about 5 minutes. I also did the firmware update with wireless and did not have a problem. Its been working good for about 2 weeks and I have not had a problem. Update Lasted about a year and started Dropping. I switched to an Engenius ap.
