I'm looking to "upgrade" my system from a AMD 6350 to a new Devil's Canyon processor coming out soon. I'm just wondering what the easy way to do this is. The problem is that I'm wanting to keep my hard drive and OS intact. (I'm running windows 8 professional) If I uninstall all the old motherboard drivers & whatnot; will the new motherboard be recognized? Can anyone post a link of a good step by step guide they've tried? Like I said, I would rather not do a clean install; maybe creating a backup of some sort and then reinstalling that, IDK? Thanks, any input is appreciated!
*Edit: Apparently windows 8 will recognize the new motherboard automatically and let me install the new drivers easily... I hope! I'll create a backup incase it doesn't.
