5 out of 5 eggsForget Intel

Pros: This CPU is the center-piece of my latest system, and it is a truly impressive piece of hardware. I use MakeMKV to rip my Blu-Ray videos and DVD's to my computer and then a program called Handbrake to recompress them into one quarter original size with zero visible loss in quality for Blu-Rays and little loss for DVD's. On my last system, which was an ASUS gaming laptop (Model G74S), this process took a week per Blu-Ray and about a day per DVD. The process runs in background, but I definitely saw a hit when playing games requiring high CPU usage. On this new system, with identical recompression settings, Blu-Rays take about 8 hours, and DVD's take less time to recompress than to play through. Furthermore, I can run the Dolphin Gamecube/Wii Emulator (which uses a crapload of CPU time) and Skyrim on ultra-high settings with no detectable loss of performance.

The included liquid cooling kit is a wonderful touch, but having such a high powered CPU in a full-size tower is helpful. Though certainly not silent, even with both exhaust fans installed, the noise levels are very unobtrusive even in the quiet parts of movies and music.

Cons: The 220w power requirement is proved extremely restrictive to what MB's I could use that would support that much power. I'd greatly have preferred the option of having PCI-E3 support on my MB so I could have chosen a faster SSD, but I haven't noticed any slow-down with my graphics card when playing Skyrim at the highest possible settings from both the nVidia control panel and the game's.

Other Thoughts: The rest of my new system goes like so:
Motherboard: GA-990FXA-UD5
RAM: 32GB DDR3-1866 G.Skill TridentX Series
GPU: EVGA 04G-P4-2986-KR GeForce GTX 980
DSP: Creative SoundBlasterZ
PSU: EVGA 220-P2-1000-XR (1000w)
OS: Windows 7 / Windows 10
Primary HDD: Mushkin Enhanced MKNP44SC480GB-DX

Just a reminder for the less experienced in building PC's, make sure to check the detailed specs of whatever PSU you select to make sure that the CPU power connector is actually designed for 220w lest your computer suddenly suffer a fatal accident when the computing gets tough.

Despite the limitations that arose from being so restricted in choice of motherboards, I feel greatly satisfied with this new system. Since it is designed for gaming, I found a great deal on a Samsung 42" LED HDTV, and the gaming quality is so profoundly awesome that I'd love to see this machine connected to a "4k" HDTV (Which oddly the 4k refers the the horizontal resolution whereas all previous measures have been vertical...).

4 out of 5 eggsnice but runs too hot

Pros: Very fast and great for the price. Good to get started on a liquid cooler set.

Cons: Liquid cooler is too small. The processor gets too hot and can not be cooled quick enough. Have 4 fans in the Chasse but it does no good. Have to keep the ac around 75° in my house any hotter and it freezes almost instantly.

Other Thoughts: None

5 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-9590

Pros: Nice product! My first build from new parts. Everything was delivered in good order, condition and in a timely manner. Assembly was well documented with easily understood manuals. Hardware was high quality, clean and no defects. Very pleased with the service, product and myself for saving a bunch of cash, by building it myself!

Cons: N/A

4 out of 5 eggsPower house

Pros: it is a very fast and powerfull CPU

Cons: since it is such i power house it takes a lot of power and only certain mother board are set up to run this CPU (i used a ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z and i am very happy with it)
you will also need some were around a 1000W power supply

Other Thoughts: i have had up to 3 virtual mechanics running at the same time running moderate loads witch the CPU kepted up with it quite well.

if you need a powerful CPU and you don't care about running a 1000w power supply this this might be a good choice for you, other wise i might look in to an Intel

5 out of 5 eggsBest processor

Pros: Unreal speeds; everything is so fast. Runs very quite when underclocking it to 4.2ghz

Cons: Fresh out the box it will not run stable. I had constant freezing, and very choppy/stuttered performance. After I underclocked it to 4.2ghz and lowered cpu voltage it runs very stable and very fast.

1 out of 5 eggsProcessor runs choppy

Pros: none

Cons: It feels like it's not stable. Running witcher 3 has been very choppy. I upgraded from an i3-2120 processor and it ran much smoother. I'm pretty upset with this purchase; I wish I could return it.

4 out of 5 eggsFX-9590 Review

Pros: Great stock speeds
Comes with a good cooler
Good Support from AMD
Easy install with cooler

Cons: Out of the box with cooler it runs too hot
Had to turn Turbo off
Had to undervolt to 1.36V from 1.5v
Out of the box keeps crashing the PC Due to heat
Cooler could be bigger

Other Thoughts: Out of the box the CPU was running very hot and I was getting blue screen when trying to play games, but after undervolting the CPU and turning the turbo off it is now idle at 31c and running stable at 4.7Ghz. This can be fixed with a better water cooler then the one that comes with the CPU. Im am happy with the performance after doing all the above things, I recommend this product only if you know how to use the bios and how to change the volt and speed of the CPU.

4 out of 5 eggsHighly Power Intensive

Pros: Insane CPU, had no issues other than my own stupidity.

Cons: requires 220 watts which is more than a lot of motherboards. Just because the motherboard is compatible, doesn't mean it will provide it enough power. The only thing you should be worried about when purchasing this chip is that your motherboard can power it properly. I had the Asus Sabertooth 990fx r2.0 and didn't know it only provided 140watts to this 220watt cpu resulting in freezes.

Other Thoughts: Everything I ran my parts list through said that the parts were compatible, and they were, but couldn't run anything cpu intense because of the lack of proper power to the cpu
