2 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-9590 Vishera 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ 220W 8-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition FD9590FHHKWOX with Liquid Cooling Kit

Pros: It's fast. I have a FX-8320 overclocked to 3.9 and this is about 30% faster running BOINC for the short time I can run it..
Makes a great heater. At full load this thing pulls almost 230 watts.

Cons: It's faster for only a short time. There is no way to keep this thing cool. The included water cooler was useless. Two minutes running BOINC would have the temp at 165 F and climbing. I then installed a Cooler Master Nepton 280L with 4 fans in push/pull which helped but I still can't run BOINC longer then 20 minutes before the temp is back up to 165 F and still climbing.
I have tried turning down the Vcore but anything below 1.5v is too unstable and locks up. I now have it underclocked at 4.2 MHz and it is stable but it still runs very hot. Idle temp is 105 F and it will still overheat. This is in a Phanteks Enthoo Luxe case which is huge with 4 case fans in addition to the 4 fans on the radiator.

Other Thoughts: I have been a fan of AMD since the K5 days but this is about it. If the Zen isn't a huge leap ahead of this useless thing I will have to do the unthinkable an buy Intel. Come on AMD, help us out. We are trying to love you but Processors like this make it very hard.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat cpu Lousy cooling

Pros: Easy install, cpu is awesome, liquid cooling solution is easy to install

Cons: Liquid cooling works okay untill you put a load on the cpu then cpu shoots up to over 65.(not even overclocking) Also very loud when under load the cpu is louder than a stock fan. I finally got tired of the noise and the overheating issue and removed the liquid cooler and replaced it with a Frio OCK from thermaltake. works great and the best part is quiet.

Other Thoughts: excellent concept but it was very loud a good portion of the noise was coming from the pump. Noise level was pretty standard till load was put. I do a lot of video work and that was when it brought the roof down. Other times ran a little warmer than normal but with in acceptable parameters. the noise though was just too much I expected it to be much quieter.

I split the rating cause oif the cooling solution.. The cpu is great.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Purchase!

Pros: I love this processor!!! Not only for gaming, but for Video editing applications, and Photography editing, and all other graphics/video editing software works great with this processor. Rendering is so much faster now, plus multi-tasking isn't a problem while rendering a massive project, I can even play games (having 32 GB memory and two r9 390x cards helps).

Cons: It does run warm and more power consumption, but honestly I could care less about that since most of the applications I run requires a processor that can handle constant work loads, and we all know that generates heat. There are many times where I'm rendering a 2 hour film with so many filters added, and the processor is working non stop for 24 hours straight ( or even up to two days straight), and that's a lot better then few years ago when I was rendering for 3-4 days straight.

Other Thoughts: I do get frustrated with all the nay Sayer's about this company, or it's products, and they always seem to tell people who purchase AMD products, what an idiot they are for purchasing AMD products. I support competition, and therefore I support the existence of two competing companies. I support AMD because I believe if this processor can do professional work as mine, and allow me to play all the top of the line games BUT FOR A FRACTION OF THE PRICE, then I'm VERY happy.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Dissatisfied. Do NOT buy.

Pros: - Somewhat fast

Cons: - Inefficient
- Runs very hot
- Crashes frequently
- Unreliable

Other Thoughts: Just after buying, I realized what a mistake I'd made, and that I should've bought an Intel processor, but I decided to keep it, since I didn't want to spend any more money on RMA fees (I bought a board with the wrong chipset), and I wanted to see if AMD could actually make a good CPU. I was very, very wrong, and am dissapointed with almost every aspect of this CPU, even speed. This is supposed to be AMD's top-of-the-line Desktop CPU, and it really isn't that great, with mid-range Intel processors with lower clock speeds, lower power consumption, and lower temps being better performing. Please do not buy this product, and take a look over at team blue, specifically their i5-4690K or their i7-4790K.

3 out of 5 eggsRuns very hot

Pros: Powerful processor and now reasonably priced. My system has been quite stable, and with the right water cooler, this processor is quite a performer. However, this processor has its quirks (see cons).

Cons: Runs too hot, even with the included water cooler. Under full load (all eight cores running BOINC software for the World Community Grid), this processor would go above 60C. When the load is removed, the temperature cools rapidly, but any processor should be able to handle full load without excessive heat. There are many reviewers complaining about the processor temperature, and this assertion is quite accurate. I recommend a larger water cooling system (see other thoughts).

Another aspect to be aware of with the processor is its motherboard and power supply requirements. This processor will by itself use a little over 200 watts, which is very high and only a few motherboards can handle this beast. Also, one needs to consider their power supply. A minimum of a 500 watt power supply, and realistically 750 watts is necessary for a gaming system containing this processor.

Other Thoughts: I went ahead and purchased another, larger water cooler system and it keeps it 50C or less when under full load. Specifically, I bought the LEPA Aquacharger 240, but there are other similar sized water coolers that would work as well. I strongly recommend a two fan system.

I went for overkill with the power supply, and currently am using a Corsair RM1000i. I think a 750 watt system would work fine, and my system under heavy load draws about 480 watts (as measured by the UPS).

I think this processor is a good one if you want a lot of processor power, and need to heat a room simultaneously. With winter coming soon, this could be seen as a good thing.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: This thing is powerful, Multi-tasking is a breeze and the chip doesn't even care. My liquid cooler works great, not overly noisy and keeps the processor under 40 degrees (C) unless under super heavy load and even then it's only ever peaked at around 51. That being said, this does run very warm considering those temps are with liquid cooling. I've not tried a standard heatsink but I doubt it would perform very well.

Cons: My only true con to this CPU is the fact that I, like many others was experiencing hangups where the PC would just totally lock up and required a hard reset. After doing some digging I found that it was the CPU and motherboard interaction. The board I'm running is a Asus Crosshair V formula Z and in the BIOS are power saving settings that are enabled by default. While those settings were on, and the CPU had a spike in voltage the entire PC would freeze solid and require a hard reset. After disabling those power savers I've had absolutely zero issues what so ever with this CPU. Not really high tech stuff to do for someone who built their own PC, but anyone not familiar with navigating mobo bios might have issues with the CPU.

Other Thoughts: the C1, C6 states in the CPU settings are the ones I was referring to in cons.


As with any type of water cooler, a large size case goes a long way when it comes to space management. The cooler it comes with is closed loop and not able to be opened. That's fine for me, it may turn others off as some folks like to change the coolant formula.

2 out of 5 eggs1 down...

Pros: After-market liquid cooling provided.

Cons: Installed the product into an ASUS mobo using a EVGA 850W gold PSU running Windows 7 SP1. The computer was randomly hanging when I would do something process intensive. I thought it was a GPU issue because this was often during game play. After performing several diagnostics and reviewing syslogs, I narrowed it down to the CPU. I read the reviews to stay away from this CPU but thought that it couldn't happen to me.

Other Thoughts: I am currently working with AMD to replace it through the warranty. I want to believe this processor is just as good as the Phenom series I had for years before I upgraded to the FX. I will re-submit a review based on AMD's warranty service.

1 out of 5 eggsKHAN!

Pros: Shipping was fast. Box was pretty.

Cons: Two of the screw holes in the radiator housing (side facing the case) came either incorrectly tapped or otherwise stripped. Were this on the side facing the inside of the case, this would be far less rage-inducing.

Other Thoughts: I was an electronics tech for the Navy for a decade, so I'm not exactly trying to friction weld with screws here, just snug stuff up so it doesn't jiggle.

Afraid to RMA because it's taken this much time and effort to get it at least marginally together... I don't want to have to take it apart again only to find something new, novel, and wrong with treplacement piece. Tempted to refill/retap the holes myself.

Haven't had a chance to even turn the thing on yet and I'm cursing a blue streak worse than what any ancient "built for .gov contract by the lowest bidder" stuff the Navy sat in front of me ever managed to get out of me. Not angry at NewEgg or even AMD... but someone at CoolerMaster (or they pay to build the cooling kit) should feel very, very bad about themselves.

Will test it all tomorrow when my slacker HD gets in. Hopefully it will all just work nice and I won't need to mess with anything else.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome chip, awesome cooler!

Pros: Super fast CPU.

Included water cooling system works perfectly. Chip runs 38-40c at idle. I've seen it go as high as 59c during heavy load, which is well within the specs.

Installation of the liquid cooler was much more straight-forward and easy (compared to some other liquid cooling systems I have installed). Also, the system is pre-filled, so no worrying about filling!

Cons: Fans can be loud when running @ 100%. If you're going to get an enthusiast-style chip like this, you need to be ready to deal with some fan noise. Complaining that your fan is noisy with a chip like this is like complaining that your car's exhaust is noisy when it's designed to be a 300 mph drag racer!

You can run the fan power line to the CPU fan output on the MB (they give you a 2-to-1 connector, allowing you to connect both CPU fans to one socket) so they increase/decrease with the CPU temp. This helps keep the noise levels down. Just NEVER run the PUMP to the CPU fan connector (it should be run to a case-fan socket ONLY)!

No instructions included. This was not an issue for me as I have installed liquid cooling systems before, but it would have been very confusing if I did not have that experience. I highly suggest you check YouTube for videos on installing liquid cooling systems if you're planning to get this chip and have never installed a liquid cooling system.

Other Thoughts: I've seen a few reviews here that claimed the chip had to be underclocked to run... this is typical of someone trying to put this chip into a 140w max. motherboard. You MUST get a 220w capable motherboard to run this chip, period. Make sure to do your research before buying a motherboard for this CPU. The one I used is:
Asus Crosshair V Formula Z ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131876&cm_re=Crosshair_V-_-13-131-876-_-Product )
There are others out there (I know Gigabyte and ASRock both make 220w boards), I just prefer Asus.

I also read quite a few reviews claiming that the water cooler that comes with the chip is junk. Sorry, not true. Maybe those people installed the fans improperly (this is easy to do). If one fan was facing the wrong way it wouldn't do squat for cooling. Also, you want to pull air in from outside, across the radiator, rather than push air outward from inside the case (at least for the CPU radiator, anyway).

They could also have an improper air circulation system in their case. These CPU fans can pump a LOT of air! If you have a bunch of case fans, all drawing air INTO the case (along with the CPU fans pulling air into the case), you might run into problems (not enough outlets). On my case, for example, I turned around the two front fans so they blow air out instead of draw air in. This helps make sure there is airflow passing through the case, instead of being trapped in there.

Another possibility is that they did not "paste" the cooler head properly. Use the "pea" method... it works very well.

I don't know if people have done some of the above things wrong, and that is why they are experiencing abnormally high temps... I can only say that mine is working perfectly and even under heavy load, for long periods of time, only goes to 59c.

Hope this helps.

1 out of 5 eggscooler insufficient junk

Pros: the CPU works awesome . great performance

Cons: The cooler issued with this item . Is garbage . the bolts stripped out . it also uses a push / pull gan setup . so you basically have a fan / radiator / fan setup . it's huge in length and very difficult to bolt up . very cheap quality bolts stripped out easily and fans are very loud .
