Replacing motherboard due to throttling CPU. LLC is busted and voltage drops up the a**. Replacing M5A97 R2.0 with Sabertooth 990fx R2.0 for FX-8350.

You could replace the it but it would be a pain taking down all of the note broken registry keys.

It would be much faster and less nerve wrecking to reinstall. Not to mention you'll resolve any other conflicts you may have had and did not notice.
