AMD FX-9590 5.0GHz Socket AM3+ Eight-Core Desktop Processor

100% Positive Reviews


Pros: Lightning fast and Super to OC. Easy to obtain 5.2ghZ, The ultimate bang for buck.

Cons: This CPU must be liquid cooled. Draws 220TDP and not all AMD MotherBoards will support this beast!

I recently finished building my new rig,and installed the AMD FX-9590 on an ASUS Crosshair v Formula z. I was a little dubious at my decision at first as, I thought I may have overheating issues. I decided to instal a closed loop liquid Cooler (Corsair Hydro H105) and in fact, the CPU doesn't even come with any stock Fan Air cooler.

Well I spent a little time tuning to obtain a stable overclock and found it fun and quite easy to obtain a moderate 5.2 GHZ Overclock.

For benching all cores are un-parked and to my surprise ambient temps are around 20-25c at idle and peak around 60-65c running the most stressful of all the tests and Ive run quite a few.

I would thoroughly recommend this CPU to any one who wants to max out their settings for Flight Sims, High End Graphics and Gaming, that are CPU intensive. sonic.gif

I'm not a Fan Boy off AMD nor do I work for AMD and have no partiallity toward Intel nor AMD, They both manufacture good product!!!thumb.gif


Pros: 1.454 vc avg when watching in hwmonitor.

Cons: none.

So I have this under an corsair h80i cooler and it never breaks out of the 30 Celsius bracket even when gaming. Performance I find it snappier than the lil brother 8350. Purchased this and put it in place the 8350 in my gaming rig and now the 8350 is in my htpc. overall the heat and power consumption is not as bad as I thought it would be. Leaving it at 4.7 works flawlessly and pairs nicely with my gigabyte board.
