FX-9370, Hyper 212 Evo, and ASrock 970 Extreme4!?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Well, a friend of mine wants a 9370, but can only get a 970 chipset board and use his ond push-pull 212 evo with it.

I found these two links that show that both pieces of hardware do work with the CPU, but I'm not too sure.

So, is it possible, or should my friend just go 990fx with an 8320? He really wants a 9xxx series CPU for whatever reason...

that chip needs watercooling

and i'm not sure the extreme4 supports that processor.

yeahh i wouldnt even recommend the 9000 series to anyone who isnt an enthusiast who wants something to play with. or even a 9000 series on a 970 motherboard doh.gif plus a 212 wont cool that thing, a all in one liquid cooler would be barely sufficient by most people's standards here!

i would suggest a 8320, it is literally the EXACT same chip, the 9000s were binned higher (handpicked) and factory overclocked. you should really stress this.

anyways it seems strange that he wants the $300 cpu but can only afford the cheap motherboards....

if hes your really good friend, slap him hahaha maybe he'll come around. My guess is he wants to one up you!

anyways if he really wants something better than you, suggest the 8350, paired with the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3, or the Asus M5A990FX Pro like you have!

Just go 990fx with an 8320 with decent cooling and overclock it to 9XXX speeds, unless your friend likes to burn money. The 9xxx series needs some serious water cooling, and the 8320 may overclock just as high anyway if he gets a good chip.

Yep, and since they have been in production for quite some time and the yields are good, theres a very good chance of getting a 9xxx choice piece of silicon in an 8320. After all, they sell a lot more $150 chips than $300 ones, and they arent going to throw away the good silicon, heh.

For a 9370 you need:

A good cooler (one which is rated at least 220W and preferably better)
A decent, high quality 990FX motherboard (such as the sabertooth or better)


I would not personally recommend buying a 9 series processor for someone unless they know a fair bit about overclocking, cooling etc. A 8320/8350 would be a much better buy to be honest.

9370 is a weird chip. it doesn't make much sense to me. 9590 makes more sense to me but not at its price point as 4.7 base is a nice number. most with these chips manage to get them to 5ghz slightly easier.

even in the hardest binning, all 8350s and 8320 can do 4.4 ghz with proper cooling (twin town big air with good fans) you don't need water. (4.6/4.7 is almost expected with these chips) it doesn't make much sense to me to go with 9370 as its really within range of the average 8350/8320 overclocking range.

thats not true at all.... why you intel no research no experience with amd come here and tell people this silly information?

i do have a friend with a FX9370 pair with a 212 Evo push pull and the CPU doesnt go over 60C playing games
please dont make this statements ever.

people here are suggestin you go with a 990X mobo which is basically a death socket and no one will pay you what you paid for it, the day you decide to sell it... just get the 970 reason is even tho you get the 990X you will end up getting water cooling anyways to OC the FX8320... people here tend to rush asap they see someone building arround AMD and say whatever comes to their mind just for the sake of no reasons...

Get 970 and get the FX9370 things is you will have to use the CPU stock no overclock can be done with a 212+

why pay the processor premium to run stock when you can save 30-50 and get the same clocks on the same cooler with a 8350 or 8320 with just a little bit of effort.

Do not get a 970 motherboard with a FX 9370. 990FX is a must for a processor with such a high TDP. You need a motherboard with strong power circuity, good cooling (especially around the VRMs of the motherboard) and solid build quality. This is something most 970 motherboards do not have. In addition to this, the motherboard the OP had in his build does not have the 9370 on the supported CPU list.

I wouldn't recommend a 212 evo with a 9370. Might get away with it, but it would make me feel very uncomfortable especially in the summer months.

Air cooling is all dependent on ambient temps. If I was in a 0C environment the stock cooler would work like a champ.

So in most cases (like mine I live in Hawaii and I don't have A/C) so that wouldn't work for me using a 212. And gaming doesn't load up the all the cores CPU to 100% or get the cpu super hot for that matter, so it may be fine for him, but do something like a lossless encode on handbrake and that cpu will more than likely heat up fast.

It's "good enough" for your friend, sure, but it may not be good enough for a lot of people here.
