Hey guys, new to the site and all. I have a question about upgrading my motherboard and cpu with a new one. Now, to start, let me say that ive tried to do some research on the subject, and Ive read that if your chipsets are different on each board, then you're going to get hit with a BSOD when you put in the new one and try to boot up. Is this true? My current board is a DFI LanParty DK 790FX-M2RS, AM2/AM2+ socket Im looking to get this Asus M4A89GTD motherboard.. AM3 socket. The original's chipset has a "AMD 790FX" north bridge. The new one has a "AMD 890GX" north bridge. Can anyone give me advice on how i should begin this task? Should I do a clean install or just replace the hardware and boot, or what? xD This is foreign soil to me.
