fx-9590 on sabertooth gen 3 rev 2

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i was thinking of taking advantage of the new lowered price on the amd fx-9590 cpu but i was wondering of anyone here has tried to see if the sabertooth gen3 rev 2 mobo is compatable with the fx-9590? it doesnt have it on asus site but aparently the sabertooth rev 2 is?!?!

I would say yes it will work.
Both Version of the Sabertooth v2 has the same bios updates.

well its said that the fx-9590 has better ipc performace compared to the 8350 and not to mention the higher clock speed ... from most of the benches ive ran into looking into the upgrade the 9590 performs quite better than the 8350 at least from what ive seen so far
post #5 of 7
are you running your 8350 at stock?

the ipc performance should be exactly the same since they are the same processor except one is factory overclocked.

i mean if you really want the best that AMD has to offer, i wont try to change your mind on that, go for it, but there are better options.

you could grab a 3770/4770k and a nice mobo and get way more performance than the 9590 could give you. Unless youre 100% against intel for some reason.

AMD set up -

amd 9590 349.99 without the cpu liquid cooler bundle, i see you have some WC parts already so i assume you dont want the liquid cooled bundle one with it.

ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX - 184.99

total for this set up - 534.99 usd

intel set up

intel i7 4770k - 339.98

asus maximus vi hero motherboard - 194.99

total for this set up - 534.98 usd

they are the same price but the intel i7 4770k will be a much better buy unless you are using all 8 cores 90% of the time, + when you overclock it, even just a little, that 9590 is gonna have a hard time catching up.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131989 asus vi hero mobo

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116901 i7 4770k cpu

grab these two imo, much better deal than just paying 349.99 for someone to pre overclock your 8350 lol
