Potential Issues / Incompatibilities

  • 1 additional PCI-Express pcie6-pin power connector is needed.
  • Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions.
  • NZXT - Source 220 ATX Mid Tower Case has front panel USB 3.0 ports, but the Gigabyte - GA-970A-DS3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard does not have onboard USB 3.0 headers.
  • The NZXT - Source 220 ATX Mid Tower Case supports video cards up to 330mm long, but video cards over 230mm may block drive bays. Since the Sapphire - Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB Video Card is 275mm long, some drive bays may not be usable.
