5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Good CPU smoking fast

Cons: Runs a little hot. 220w i have a H100iGTX corsair closed loop CPU cooler. Keeps it realy cool at 4.8GHz OC never gets above 35c under full load. Liquid cooling is a must with this CPU

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU but it's a mobo killer. UPDATE1-16-16

Pros: I've been a dedicated AMD builder for well over a decade and never had any issues that were not an act of nature or EOL - I decided to upgrade my 6 mo old M5a99fx pro 2.0 rig from a 945T quad to this along with the psu and twin gtx 750's. For a year it was every bit it was supposed to be an more and never over-clocked in fact I kept it pretty tame. I do a lot of audio & video editing and also spreadsheets and some virtualization stuff and it was always awesome until... Logged in 2 days ago to check some email and was in a browser and on skype at the same time-everything went black. oped the case and the cpu led is on, cpu is cool as a stone. VRM power area of the mobo was smoking hot. you know the rest. I am suspecting one of the caps or something in the vrm locked but haven't had much chance to check deeper as of this writing. The PSU, ram, ssd's and twin gpus are all fine in another unit. nothing ive tried will make it run short of surgery. looks like an rma for asus. I am giving it 5 eggs cause as cpus go this ones not bad-- AMD should have been shot at sunrise for not finding a way to get the energy usage down and make this more efficient. And it's definitely not the mobo's fault either-- this thing gets wild when it gets loose in turbo mode. you better make sure you have everything else to a T.

EDIT - Better read my update in the OTHER section---->

Cons: Cant really think of any other than the power consumption. I never OC and have never had to. the board was at defaults and i had turbo shut down. never needed it. I bought this with the corasir water bundle when i got it and as CPU's go I never caught it utilizing more than 70-80% no matter what i was doing and it was idling when the board gave up, don't sell the asus short, cause over the year it ran I worked it like a mule. Even with all the monitoring we have available after a while with a good running rig we do get complacent, so I wasn't monitoring anything at the time-- who would to check email? Over the time i had it ive run all versions of win 7, 8, 8.1, am in the win 10 fast ring and I load clean OS's like some folks change clothes - also several flavors of linux and various tool distros for working on others rigs and never had a single problem. only thing i can think is that the vrm had finally had enough.

Other Thoughts: this cpu was released to the public well after a lot of these mobos were growing hair. Once I know if the cpu is still intact I plan to look at some of the others out there but if your going to use this remember any cpu is only as good as the mobo your putting it on and this thing is a complete power pig. that being said do your homework and whatever you do -- dont even think about this cpu on air., I never tried it but i know someone who did and lost it and his mobo before he got the OS installed. If you know what your doing then you know the drill. this one is not for the faint of heart or noob builder. if i had to do it again I would get the 8370 or 8350, the only reason being power consumption and lack of solid, good boards to handle it long term. this is the number 1 problem with this cpu. most people havent kept em running in the same rig much over a year. do a search and youll see. think of it like a dragster.....man its fun but its a dice roll and then theres what happens when the best laid plans go wrong. I will rebuild it if the cpu is able. One thing for sure-- with the mobo and cpu aside-- History especially with amd chipsets, northbridges run hot as fire. especially in the 990 series. the mobo here uses the same chrome plated tubing to connect the vrm heatsink to the northbridge that everyone seems to these days and chrome is not a great dissapator-and heat travels both ways- if i had to do it again id have watered both the northbridge and vrm and if it gives me the chance, thats what I will do this time. my gut and experience tells me that the northbridge had a lot to do with this one -- the cpu never got hot--EVERYTHING else did.

UPDATE1-16-16---> The final outcome of this was a real suprise. A local buddy of mine had a shop and had a Crosshair V foumula z that a guy never picked up so I went and got it to see if I still had a cpu. Got home and threw the 945T on it to get things straight and check the bios which was fully updated and then dropped the 9370 on it and nothing.. so now I am thinking the worst and hit it again and now it throws and error code - no cooling--so i got brave-- i had a corsair 120mm air unit here and dropped that on it and it came up--went into bios fast and locked everything down well under spec to keep it sane while I went deeper. In the end it was the water pump itself that died. now I dont know what killed what so I sent a ticket off to cooler master, 5 days later I get an email stating that since this was part of an OEM package it would be referred to the OEM department, a week goes by and I get this email stating your case has been resolved thanks for buying cooler master etc. So I finally get hold of someone at cooler master and they told me that this system was never meant to run this cpu---keep in mind this came as a combo package from AMD -- next reply I got said that whoever did this hadn't done the homework and these two never should have been combined to start with -- that pump won't handle that CPU.. So in the end my best guess and knowing these circuits and the mosfets they use in the vrm, the asus m5a99 basically killed itself to protect the rest of the system when the bios got the error code from the pump. Some mosfets have a crowbar circuit built in that blows the mosfet to protect whatever' it's feeding. in the end i lost the board and I am 99% sure it was the pump's fault. So I am writing this update to tell you that if you bought the combo that had the cooler master seidon 120 system that came with it, and it's still running - GET SOMETHING ELSE FAST cause it's a time bomb and it will die. get a different cooling system quick before you lose the board or worse. At the moment the system is parked until i finish getting the rest of the new water system I am putting together for it and the new case. I will never trust a sealed system water unit again and definitely recommend some way of knowing when the water stops flowing even if its only a visible bubble indicator. The cpu will be fine but the seidon 120 is not a good match for this cpu and a cooler master rep even said so. At this point I cant really fault anything except the marketing figurehead somewhere that thought this package was a good idea. in the end coolermaster did not back it up and I can't really blame them either. I decided not to pursue the rma with asus and i love the crosshair and wanted a new case and better cooling system anyway-I have run the system a few times for a few minutes since then with everything locked down long enough to get to the win 10 desktop and everything else survived and is in good shape - lesson learned - do not cut corners with your cooling on this and steer clear of the sealed system water units on this cpu-- it's not enough!

5 out of 5 eggsFerrari of CPU's

Pros: I installed this CPU on a Asus Sabertooth 990X revision 1.xx board with zero problems. The CPU is sold without a fan because AMD wants you use a water cooling solution. That is your first clue that this thing is gonna draw power and get hot. These are not negatives..just a information is power thing. This CPU runs anything I throw at it with no problems. Zero fails at any time for this CPU/Mobo combination. I have a 250gb AMD SSD and a Asus R9-390 with 8gb (Stryx) and its a beast for Fallout 4 or any other graphics intensive game

Cons: Not really a con but again..get a GOOD water cooler for this CPU. I am using a Corsair H100 240mm sealed water cooler for this. When I run some serious applications/programs..one end of the radiator does get a bit warm, but this is where the water enters the radiator and its not unpleasant to touch or uncomfortable..just warm.

Other Thoughts: Water cooling and good case airflows are a must with this beast. I haven't tried to OC it because there is not any need to.

5 out of 5 eggsA+++

Pros: Runs great at 4.73Ghz!

Cons: 220W requires liquid cooling, not really a con, but more of a need to know!

5 out of 5 eggsI love AMD's products and affordability!

Pros: The processor was very easy to install. I have an ASUS crosshair v formula- z motherboard with latest bios so it worked flawlessly.
I am a gamer so I needed some power to run the latest games. The 9370 runs Arkham Knight wonderfully among other top games.
With great power comes great heat though, you must use water cooling. I purchased a Corsair an H80i GT and I am amazed at my 40 -50 degree Fahrenheit temps while I'm typing and around 90 to 100 Fahrenheit degrees while heavy gaming.

Cons: Beware with this much power you must buy a water cooling system to keep your precious processor cool and to preserve it's longevity!

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product. I did turn the turbo core off to help keep the processor a little cooler and I don't want the water cooler to work too hard.

3 out of 5 eggsbe careful

Pros: Super powerful

Cons: Huge power draw, heat

Other Thoughts: Note that not many motherboards support a 220W CPU!! Do your research on the motherboard manufacturer website and verify that this CPU is compatible!! I purchased a motherboard only to be met with "MB thermal does not support CPU over 200W. Shutting down to protect main board"

5 out of 5 eggsHas been a great CPU for two years now

Pros: 8 cores is overkill for anything today but at this price point its hard to not go for it. AMD is the price to performance king as far as I'm concerned and Zen is looking great. If you need something to do everything you need it to do and then some while still building on a budget then it doesn't get much better than this right now, as long as you can cool it.

Cons: Its the surface of the sun. Even with a liquid cooler its hot so be prepared to spend a little extra cooling it.

Other Thoughts: If I had to buy a CPU on the same budget again, two years ago, I would not hesitate to get this chip or one of the others in the same family again.

1 out of 5 eggsNot compatible?

Pros: Got the cpu installed, doesn't run

Cons: Hopefully someone on here can help me..I bought this cpu because it was on sale for the same price as the 8350. It was going to replace the 4100 in there now. i installed the cpu and when i went to go turn it on, all the fans and lights turned on but i had a black screen.

Other Thoughts: I have a crosshair V formula motherboard (not the z) which supports AM3+ cpu and the 990fx chipset (says it right on the box that i still have from 3 years ago) so i didn't bother checking the cpu compatibility list on asus website. when i went to look for a new version of the bios this cpu is only listed under the formula-z motherboard and the newest cpu listed for my board was the 8350.. can i use the bios for the 8350 or will this cpu not work on my board and why.
