MSI Drops 125W CPU Support On K9A2 CF Board

MSI's 790X-based board apparently uses cheaper components that can't handle 125W TDP CPUs.

Fixed link Wow what an error in judgement. With the X4 Phenom's having a 140W TDP at stock, overclocking is going to make things even worse. Hopefully the B3 revisions will run a little cooler, although MSI are going to have to re-think at a design level methinks

A Guide On How to Shoot Yourself In The Foot

Step 1 - Use cheap components.

Step 2 - Realise cheap components break

Step 3 - Revoke support of future CPU's, tell community no overclocking here

Step 4 - Sit back, relax and bask in the glorious foot shooting action as market share and reputation plumets.

Yep this board has terrible PWM. It's a shame because people were getting awesome overclocks on it @ XS until the PWM went up in smoke .

Thank god the 790FX Platinum uses better PWM.

Well, most tech companies design things to start breaking after the warranty is all used up, I guess they got it a bit wrong and they are breaking too early, especially if you start to overclock them.

Big Thanks to OC3D for posting this, I almost bought it. I must say I was a little worried when I saw it only had a 4 pin power for the CPU (instead of the 8 pin) but figured it must be OK or they wouldnt sell it.

Its only the Version1 mobo, hopefully in the newer versions they will fix it.
