AMD FX-9590, A Beast chomping at the bit!

Posted

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...

works great with my gigabyte 990fx-ud7 rev.3 board

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.

Another great Flagship CPU from AMD!

Pros: SPEED!

Cons: None

Another Great CPU from AMD..... To put the Intel skeptics at ease, please do your research or buy it and test it yourself before joining the INTEL club because its not all about single threaded applications anymore. If you truly utilize this processor for its full potential you will be pleasantly surprised. A simple but good example is that it get a Windows experience index score of 7.8 right out of the box with no OCing and in my honest opinion there is no real need for overclocking this CPU unless you plan on shutting off some cores. Some complain about heat and stability issues but I write off most of that stuff to inexperience or user error. My sample is perfect with no issues,...
