Help in Migrating over to AMD (Overclocking the FX9590)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I have been using Intel CPUs for such a long time that I totally forgotten about AMD CPUs. As I have been a support of AMD for a long time (Phenom II was my last AMD) I now wish to switch back to AMD. I don't really care if its slower than Intel (I am now using i7 4790K), as long as its AMD I am happy.

The only thing I am want is to hit 5GHz on all cores with the FX9590. I am going to purchase the Asus Crosshair V Formula Z board together with FX9590. Do you think it is possible to do 5GHz on all 8 cores with this CPU. I know cooling is important. I will be using EKWB Supremacy Evo waterblock and 240mm radiator with Delta fans (noisy but good) to keep it cool. If cooling is not an issue, do you think it is possible to hit 5GHz on this combo?

This is going to keep me going till next year when Zen is out, then migrate to Zen.

Well, these people have done it.

If you have room I'd recommend larger than 1 240 rad if possible.
These 95xx's can run with a LOT of heat depending on bin number! I'd rather have over kill rather than wishing I had more rads.
I currently run a RX360 and a 140mm rad and am considering adding another rad as I do have the room but than I do like my system quiet.

It would be easy to get 5ghz out of that processor since to turbos to 5ghz anyhow. Just turn off all the Cool n Quiet features, Disable Turbo, and increase the Multiplier a few notches.

This is totally untrue, many, many people have had no luck getting the 9590 to 5 GHz stable on all 8 cores even with big custom loops, insane voltage and Crosshair V Formula Z's. These forums are littered with threads pertaining to this.

Allegedly, the more-recent 9590s should be better. If you can snag one from wk29 2014 or later, that will be to your benefit, OP.

Though really, people have been hitting 5 GHz on 8320es and 8370es. I would recommend one of those over a 9590, really.

I've had no luck overclocking my 9590 at all, not even a little. As was mentioned above, newer chips may have better luck but I have kept mine at stock after multiple attempts at getting a little more power out of it. Even at stock and with a full loop with 140x6 worth of rads in push/pull and 20C air I still hit 60-62 degrees under heavy load and these chips don't like running that hot. Again there are certainly better chips out there and mine is probably just a dud but no amount of voltage or cooling seems to get this thing stable O.o Good luck to you OP if you have a go at OC'ing yours redface.gif

Ok thanks. I just ordered FX9590 yesterday on amazon, hope it can hit 5ghz.

As drmrlordx said the newer (1429PGS and later) which is the second line of text etched onto the CPU itself seem to be doing better.
I have a 1429 that I purchased from the egg Dec 1st of 2014. Be sure to rip that packaging open and make that the first thing you look at biggrin.gif

You might want to look at the top link below, the 5GHz club and see for yourself who's running 5GHz and with what.
Take a look in my rig sig and you'll see how this one runs. (5117MHz without issue)

Its hit or miss. This Cpu reaks havoc on the Crosshair V Formula Z vrm section. The board start to do funky things like frequent crashes when overclock to 5 ghz with no turbo. Some things seem irreversiable. Very disappointed with this chip . Waste of money. Hard on Motherboard. Should have gotton 8350
