touch the wrong two pins while trying to power the board on could be a bad thing..... Not saying the idea is bad, just be cautious.

Forgive me, i only run simple motherboards, they don't have buttons on them. biggrin.gif I don't think there is danger by touching the wrong pins. The danger is when you touch the PCB with the screwdriver. I 've been dragging the screwdriver over the pin area ever since socket A and never happened anything. What can happen? The only circuit you can close to power up the mobo, is the one of the power switch. Say you touch one pin of the power switch and one pin of the power LED or of the HDD LED. So what? The motherboard can't be powered like that... I 've actually started doing that, after watching a PC repairman doing it in front of me. There is no way to shortcircuit anything by just touching the pins. The short circuit, implies that you create an alternative route, inside the same circuit. The pins on the motherboard, run different circuits (otherwise there would be one cable that would light all leds at once) and only one of them, can actually power the mobo. Hence, why it doesn't short circuit. Either that or i 've been extremely lucky for like 15 years.

I bricked a board once. many years ago. Sparks and the whole deal. So now I make power buttons and cmos switches on a whip for convenience. Using a screw driver just seems like a crude way to clear cmos or power on a board when I've spoiled myself with home made switches.

Well, warning to be careful is never harmful and in this case, since the motheboard has a button, better use the button. With the screwdriver, if you slip and touch the motherboard surface, you may fry it. Or, theoretically, a motherboard, where more connectors run on the same circuit, although i 've never had one.

I 've bricked motherboard by touching it (electrostatic discharge) and one by a drop of sweat on it (that damn physics professor at school saying to keep water away from electronics, he was right!). tongue.gif

Regardless of all else, would be a good thing to confirm whether or not all is really OK in there.
I'd remove the board and all, set it up outside of the case itself and test it.

I once had a problem with a powerswitch that was sticking and causing the setup to poweroff as if I was just holding the powerswitch - Drove me crazy for awhile trying to figure it out. Setting it outside of the case revealed it and eventually ran it with the reset switch as the power button until I retired the case.

Yes, aircooling a 9590 isn't going to work for long, it will get hot and shutdown. If in a case as yours is I'd be highly suspect of that being the root of your problem.
It will run as hot as any 8 cored FX OC'ed to 5.0 because that's what it is and the same thermal loads, powerdraw and the like applies to this application.
You must treat it the same as you would any heavily OC'ed FX chip with regards to cooling itself.

However if you do have another CPU to use for simple testing, I'd try it and see what it does, then retry the 9590 if it does work. If you have an AM3 chip, even a Sempron then try it since that will confirm all else is OK if it works at all.
