    why is that a problem?
  3. I have noticed over the past few days (as I have been shopping for a new PSU) that a lot of people are giving corsair PSU's bad reviews. Even ended up following a few links to YouTube where people's Corsair PSU's had blown up at idle speed. Something to do with cheap capacitors I think. I have an fx8350 with an msi r9 390 and your same mobo, being shipped to my house as we speak. You have any problems with your mobo? I was a little iffy when buying it because of the great price (got it for 75 bucks)
  4. Msi 970 Gaming is a GREEAT motherboard. One of the better 970 boards.
