5 out of 5 eggsBlazing Fast...Not Nearly As Hot

Pros: This processor is extremely fast. I was planning on OC for fun, but with AMD Turbo enabled I have no need while using it for serious gaming.

Everyone has been commenting on how this runs hot. I purchased a water cooler (Corsair H100i) to go in my NZXT Phantom Full Tower. I also replaced the stock H100i fans with Noctua NF12's for whisper quiet performance. With this setup I'm idling at around 24°C. With Prime 95 it peaked at 44°C. I also attempted to set up a push/pull config with the Noctua and stock Corsair fans but saw negligible improvement (not enough to warrant using the loud H100i stock fans).

Running this with 16GB of RAM and a SanDisk SSD and it manages to boot to Windows 10 Technical Preview in about 8 seconds.

Cons: Nothing worth knocking an egg off for.

5 out of 5 eggsMonster

Pros: Super fast... Blazing speed through anything you throw at it...
Asus crosshair V formZ recognized it right away. Upgraded from a quad-core 3.6 ghz and the difference is very evident... Haven't overclocked yet.

Cons: Few issues, none that can't be dealt with though...
1. HEAT... this thing is scolding hot... Hooked it up with a H110 right out of the box, but under heavy load it peaked at 65-66C. Still within range, but a little too warm for me. Just changed to a push-pull on the H110 and under heavy load now it doesn't go over 58C... Much better. Can't imagine this one without liquid cooling of some sort...
2. If you have Win7 make sure to unpark the cores... the games were jittery at time. Unparked and everything is fine.

Other Thoughts: For the price it's a good deal... Top shelve for AMD... Hope it lasts. Lots of power, lot of heat. I've had it for a week now and finally was able to get temps where I like them (idle 30C- max load 58C). Other than that it works like a champ... I highly reccomend it. Just make sure you get a motherboard that supports it, and don't skimp on the power...

5 out of 5 eggsfast on a budget

Pros: no it is not as fast as the new top dog intell but it is 1/4th the cost and allowed us to invest in to a 980 extreme GPU
saying a AMD FX9590 is slow is like saying a 11sec car is slow because your car is a 10.5 sec car
and the 8core FX 9590 will run any game out there for years to come even on the 28" 4k monitor

Cons: 220w cpu

Other Thoughts: excellent choice for a build with limited funds
we decided to go with the FX9590 32gig ram and a new ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 AMP! Extreme and it was worth it to say below the $2000 limit for the build
the new Intell chip would have cost us another $500

5 out of 5 eggsWay better than expected

Pros: Bought this with a combo deal of a H100i and GA-990FXA-UD3. Newegg sent the rev 4.0 of the motherboard - that was critical for the FX-9590. I had been gaming with an FX-8350 with an H55 cooler on a Sabertooth 990FX.

Temps using HW monitor: 29 deg C at idle. I hit a max of 42 deg C playing Alien: Isolation at max settings. Highest temps seen under Prime95 were 48-50 deg C. I put the H100i in the top my Corsair HAF venting out.

Funny, my FX-8350 got WAY hotter than this CPU. Granted, the H55 is nowhere near the H100i, but the FX-8350 is clocked lower also. I would quickly hit 60 deg C at 4.2 GHz with my 8350. I guess my 8350 is one of the hotter ones.

But, this time around I got a nice cool 9590. I should have no problem getting to 5 GHz. That's my next project. I'm very happy I purchased this.

Cons: Don't use this CPU without liquid or a top of the line air cooler.

Other Thoughts: The price drops and combo deal made this almost a wash with an i7-4770K and quality motherboard (I actually saved a little $). I realize the 4770K is a better CPU. But, the performance gaming world needs AMD to succeed in order to keep pushing Intel innovation. Just doing my part.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW

Pros: Fast..Idles cooler

Cons: You need to update BIOS. Not really a con, but had me going for a few hours only reading 4G instead of the 4.7G

Other Thoughts: Use the QFlash (Gigabyte)

3 out of 5 eggs4.7 ?

Pros: Still working on it.

Cons: I'm not a OverClocker and 4.7 G was fine with me. Trouble is it's reading 4 G. I haven't found a reason for it or anyone else complaining about ir.

Other Thoughts: Was I slipped a lesser model?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: It is surprisingly fast ! Just pop it in and add some kind of water cooling or high end air cooler and your set! Everything seems snappier than my FX8350

Cons: Price , it wasn't free and to use it you need a high end cooler either water or air but expensive!

Other Thoughts: I wish it was an AMD CPU based on their latest apu core that was clocked to about 6ghz.
