    I want to upgrade my motherboard, but I don't know which one I should buy

    Yeah mine is an old windows 10 disk but it is mine I paid full price for and feel great about. What versions and what crap? I am now confused this is windows 10 and OS we are talking about right? Go to store buy the version you want, go home install be happy. No theft required. Just how I done...

    Right! I would suggest to the OP that they go buy a real windows 10 disk from a retail store! I have NEVER once stolen anything let alone a copy of windows! I'm not perfect but I am NOT a THIEF either!

    Your GPU is better than perfect why? With this I agree. There is no real upgrade needed and op went from MB to CPU to GPU. Good luck I'm out.

    I know it has been said many times but man your system is just Amazing as it is. Why would you change a thing? Save the cash you have for a new build in the future like a few years in the future. I know it is hard not to want the latest and greatest but personally I can see you have that now.

    I disagree. This is just not true. I mean look at the FX era of MB's anyone without VRM heat-sinks were garbage and burned up hell even ones that had them did, But that was a bit harder to do than the ones without them.

    Personaly I have never bought a MB without proper cooling this includes HS for the VRM. This is why I suggest the MB's in my sig.

    4pin EPS enough for amd fx 8350?

    Agreed. The PSU would be my main concern here.

    4pin EPS enough for amd fx 8350?

    Well it would be nice to have a pic of the OP's current MB that would help some what. One bad thing that the MB manufactures failed to do back in the FX day was use adequate VRM chips and cooling for the VRM. Mine is fine now that I took the I/O plate off. It was hindering air flow making the...

    Well I did! All that was mentioned was and is the MSI 970. If that MB has a HS for the VRM then you are golden that is all I can say the FX and the MSI MB is amazing and I get 4.2GHz no issues!

    If you have the MSI 970A-G46 Like I do then yeah it's fine and YES you can OC the HELL out of the CPU then, Just one thing I would do is leave the I/O shield off let the CPU fan blow the air over the VRM heat-sink.

    Snake oil for your cables!

    Oxidized connection isn't going to lead to any real signal loss unless the area is also corroded. Oxidization should not cause any loss in perceptible sound, Unless there is corrosion of the metal. So it's really not an issue unless you live is the saltiest air in the world.

    All I have to say about the OP's post is "Watch out". If it sounds too good to be true it most likely is.

    Like any word if used to much it looses it's meaning. And as rich snobs and Know it all's took over the word it is MEANINGLESS to me. Now if you don't have ATMOS and 50 speakers and 10k in wires and some over priced out of reach system and your speakers have to be PERFECTLY ABSOLUTELY...

    Yeah so does soldering the connections. LOL I solder all my wire's when possible. Like my speaker wires are all soldered. Now I know exactly what you are talking about I used that "electronic grease" for a lot of stuff, Mainly when putting things in my boat each wire end gets a generous...
