MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s ports by AMD SB950 - Supports storage and data transfers at up to 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Price

Cons: Neglected to provide MOSFET heatsink
It Will Not Last LONG...

Other Thoughts: Purchased This Board With The Understanding that it was military Class Caps And Really Good Quality. But Upon Further Inspection Realized NO VRM Protection at all. For All Those Who do not know what that is. The MOSFETS That Run Next To The CPU approximately 20 of them are left with no protection. The Most important part of the board that supply the proper voltage.

If I could get in touch with an MSI representative that would be great. I was interested in buying an OEM MOSFET heatsink from an MSI 970a G46. They get very hot even when not using the system extensively and I'm worried the board may not last long due to this. A heatsink would make me feel a lot better about this and probably extend the life of the board a little bit.

5 out of 5 eggs EVO The Beast !!! 01/13/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Super Cold After Installing On My AMD FX6300.
34c in idle
45c with stress testing with Prime95.
Quiet Included Fan.

Cons: None Yet.

Other Thoughts: Installed On An AMD FX6300 CPU and is way better than Stock Fan. My Temps Went from 50c to 34c in idle.
100% CPU Usage with Prime95 Stress Testing resulted in amazing performance. Never Hotter Than 45c No Matter What i throw at it. The Best Money Ever Spent On A FROZEN CPU Cooler. The EVO is a beast !!!
