Started playing Star Wars Battlefront. Sorry to say this but a 9590 running at 8 cores 4.9 Ghz to keep the heat down is barely enough. Probably would be better with a 290/390. But not doing so well Crossfired 285/380. They do come close to same thing as a 290. Too much heat, had to slow them down to 900 Mhz. Needed to put the other 8 Gb in too. I had to slow the ram down because the board don't like running 4 sticks at 2400. 16 Gb does help the CPU also, I think. It is playable this way on a single 2560 x 1440 monitor. The FPS are pretty good (over 60), but damn does it generate some heat. Using 15.3 drivers maybe 16.15.2 might work better. I will run it again if someone wants a screen of FPS, and temps while playing. Looks like I am going to get a 480 and a Zen,,, if they ever show up.
