5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good.

Pros: Seems to work quite well with my Sabertooth 990FX R2 MB. No problems at this point. Does not run hot for me because I'm using a Corsair water cooler.

Cons: This is the second processor I've had to install to get things going.

Other Thoughts: There are two things that I had to do in order to get this processor to work. 1, I had to re flash the BIOS. 2, I installed a bigger power supply. After doing that everything works excellently. I would suggest that anyone trying to install this processor in a ASUS board, to at least re flash the latest BIOS before installing. Although this might be difficult to do for some because they don't have an older processor to install first. All I can say is before re flashing I could not even get the computer to go to POST with this processor but it worked fine with the older, lower wattage processor I had. The power supply upgrade was just an added assurance that there would be no other problems. It was originally 850 Watts and I replaced that with one at 1250 Watts. AMD seems to recommend at least 1000 Watts. No sweat since the supply will only pull as many watts as are needed and no more.

5 out of 5 eggsFast No need to say more

Pros: ASUS Sabertooth,16GB Sniper DDR3 2400,Ultra 1050W PS,Cooler Master V8 GTS CPU Cooler w/vapor chamber and 8 heatpipes,XFX Black Edition Double dissipation R9-290A EDBD Radeon R9 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0x16 Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case. With this combo does not overheat CPU Cooler is HUGE make sure you have room enough in whatever case you are using for build. Overclocked to 5.0 will take anything that you throw at it. WIN 7 Pro 64bit

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Well worth the extra money hard to beat. You need at the very minimum 1000W Power Supply for this CPU.

4 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-9590 - More bang for your buck

Pros: Unlocked 8 core Processor

Cons: Requires a lot of power
Requires Liquid Cooling

Other Thoughts: I'm running a H60 Liquid cooler and I really feel that's not enough.
I may step up to an H100 or a custom water cooler system to include other parts of the PC.
for that reason, I haven't OC'ed it, and right now I don't really need to.
PC games that require some CPU usage would cripple my poor i3; but this thing has had no issues whatsoever.
Once again, I'm not really pushing it too hard due to my cooling system being a little on the low side.
I paired this with a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsA powerful monster that needs a good leash

Pros: The 8 cores really show their strength in multitasking and the overall power is outstanding idling at less than 1%. Blows through everything I throw at it and never complains.

Cons: Comes at the cost of tons of heat. Mine is cooled with H100i which manages to do the job, BUT does not provide any headroom for overclocking.

4 out of 5 eggsTurbo Core causes instability

Pros: speed

Cons: Turbo Core not working right

Other Thoughts: Purchased with ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0, GSkill RipJaws X-Series (2x8GB), and Cooler Master Seidon 240M liquid cooler. Upgraded old MB, CPU, and RAM. Reused Sapphire HD7970 3GB video card, and 2 Seagate 7200rpm HDs.

Upon first assembly and refreshing Windows Experience scores, the system would slow to a crawl about half way through. System clock would essentially stop. Tried adjusting BIOS settings to figure it out, but nothing fixed it. Decided to try PCMark 8 Demo, and had same effect, except it slowed almost immediately. Started up the CPU Fequency monitor from Asus Suite, and rerun PCMark. When the system slows down, the cpu frequency would spike anywhere from 800 to over 2000, and would not drop to normal until I managed to cancel the benchmarking. Went into the BIOS and disabled Turbo Boost, and repeated the benchmark and everything worked fine.
Not sure if this is a CPU issue, MB issue, or a bug in the BIOS.
Other than that issue, the system seems to work perfectly fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor, No complaints

Pros: I put this into a custom PC 6 months ago and have had great performance with no problems. Used with a Cooler Master Seidon 240M

Cons: High power dissipation when fully utilized

5 out of 5 eggsEpic

Pros: Does the job and more from the gaming aspects

Cons: As expected heats up alot make sure you have the right cooler. I went with a Thermaltake NiC C5. It's fine for now but no chance of overclocking it with that.

Other Thoughts: Cheap for what you get

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Eight cores, fast, cheaper than the other guy. Runs like a scalded dog.

Cons: what??????

Other Thoughts: I have this cpu running on an Asus Sabertooth R-2 Gen 3 board. I have had no problems with heat or stability. I have it cooled by a Corsair H110 with fans just in the pull configuration and it idles @34-36. It is also clocked @ 5.3, all day long with no hiccups. Memory runs @ 2600.
People need to pay attention to what motherboard is compatible with this cpu. Seems to me like there is a lot of operator error dealing with this cpu. As for a power supply, I run an XFX 1250w psu. You need to do your homework when it comes to this cpu. If not you will wind up like some of these folks here with a destroyed motherboard or blown psu or it just doesn't work on an incompatible motherboard.
This is my first serious AMD FX chip. I really like it. I would also recommend this chip to anyone who wants to build a high end AMD machine. I can't wait for the next gen of FX chips that come out in 2016.
If you have the money and the right equipment, I would recommend this chip. You won't regret it.

4 out of 5 eggsFinicky but good value

Pros: The last hurrah for the venerable AM3+ platform.
5MHz clock speed in burst mode.
At $250, the price/performance ratio is unbeatable even when you do factor in a premium heatsink.

Cons: Generates insane amounts of heat. The stock AMD AM3+ copper-bottom air cool heatsink won't cool this beast; a heavy duty heat sink is required (preferably water cooling) and even then it runs hot.

It does have built-in thermal throttling which drops the clock rate when it reaches a pre-set threshhold, so it's safe to run, but if you want to get the full benefit of this CPU you need serious cooling.

Basically, this chip is overclocked out of the box, so of you're looking for something that you can tweak, forget it. It's already pushing the limits.

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd AM series CPU over a stretch of 7 years. It's pretty amazing how well AMD has kept the platform relevant and competitive.

I'm a little annoyed that Newegg dropped the price by 25% a week after I bought mine, but that's life.
