5 out of 5 eggsAMD Fx9590 Review

Pros: - High Processing Power
- Low Price
- 8 Core
- Comes with the ability to overclock to 5 Ghz

Cons: - Power Hungry 220 Watts
- Doesnt benchmark as good to other comparable processors in CERTAIN categories.

Other Thoughts: Besides the power hungry nature of this beast, it performs VERY well. Ive had AMD loyalty for a long time. I was thinking of going Intel, but for a processor thats comparable to this you would have to spend a couple hundred dollars more.

5 out of 5 eggsD.O.A. "SOME WHAT DEAD"

Pros: CPU did come fast as expected, but did not perform as expected. It was a bit sluggish, found out the truth when I went to perform a "WINDOWS EXPERIENCE INDEX". When the test got to the CPU part of the test, the system would HANG and LOCK UP !!!

Cons: know once I get a good CPU, I will be happy, but till then, oh well. For now thou, Less than wished for performance, hope the replacement works right. What I have seen this is common for the 220 series of cpu's, they are bad, but when you finally get a good one, it WILL FLY TO THE MOON.

Other Thoughts: No need to drop eggs, its just the nature of this beastly cpu.

5 out of 5 eggsThink and it's already there!

Pros: Paired this hot CPU with the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 MOBO, a CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler and 16GB (8x2) 1866 Crucial Ballistix Elite RAM. Everything works great together.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Though I haven't tried yet, overlclocking is an option with both this CPU and the RAM.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: If you have the Motherboard for it, it's on sale. It's a nice upgrade from the FX 8350.
Got mine OCed at 5 GHz. Not boosted to 5 Ghz, running at 5 GHz, no problem.

Cons: Have to use watercooling.
Price should have been this low from the start.
Some motherboards, if upgrading from a prior FX Processor, you must clear your BIOS via the jumper.

Other Thoughts: Wish AMD would come out with a MoBo settings for vendors to flash the motherboard to PCIE 3.0.

5 out of 5 eggsScreaming Fast

Pros: Amazingly fast processor, and handles multitasking the way a great processor should.

Cons: It isn't really a con, but this processor runs very warm. 33 - 38 degrees Celsius using a very high end liquid cooler with four radiator fans in push/pull configuration.
