5 out of 5 eggsPerformance & Speed

Pros: Very Fast Performing CPU, No Heat Shutdowns Yet
For Once the Actual Cooler that came with the Cpu Actually Really Cools the CPU unlike the cooler that came with the FX 8120 Zambezi 8 core Processor, i ended up having to get a aftermarket cooler for that CPU

Average Cpu Idle Temp 9C or 46F

I run this Beast with XFX R9-290X-8DFD Radeon R9 290X 8GB 512-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Double Dissipation Edition, and the prior CPU I was Using was AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor Black Edition

I Ran a few tests with Cinebench R15
Amd FX 8120 OC 4.4 ghz and XFX R9 290x
Test : (3 of 3) best - OpenGL 66.08 FPS & CPU 454 CB

Amd FX 9590 4.0ghz and XFX R9 290x
Test : (3of3) best - Open GL 85.78 FPS & CPU 618 CB

MSI Kombustor V CPU Burner
Test: AMD FX 9590 Vishera at 4.0ghz On Full Load
Test For 5 Minutes Temp 46C or 115F

And still i was multi tasking and no freezing or lockups this CPU Runs absolutely great

Cons: None So Far

Other Thoughts: Do Not Use MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3+ AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard, For some wierd reason i can not go any higher than 4 ghz otherwise i have to do a CMOS reset and start over, i believe this board will run this cpu as im using it right now, but there wasnt any new updates for this cpu so if i want to see its full potential ill have to go with a new motherboard, i overclocked my Amd FX 8120 Zambezi to 5 ghz and it ran stable with all cores unlocked another beast of a CPU, but i will have to upgrade the motherboard, Which is my fault not Neweggs So i Scored This Amd Fx 9590 Vishera at 5 eggs, I purchased this CPU March 02, 2015 $299.99, i Apologize for late feedback, Thanks Again Newegg!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat combo!

Pros: I love everything about the functionality of this combo! Its blazing fast and increased my gaming performance from my other setup exponentially.

Cons: One of the cooling radiator fans arrived DOA ;(

Other Thoughts: Despite being one fan down on the radiator, my CPU temp never went over 52 c, even while playing bioshock infinite on ultra with depth of field settings on. If it wasn't for the dead fan, I would be giving this 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful

Pros: Speed

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: In December of 2013 I was looking to upgrade my system from a Phenom II Black Ed. cpu. I was not really hurting for an upgrade as that cpu was working quite well and I had no issues with it. but the mobo was a headache. I figured if I am going to upgrade my mobo, I'm going to upgrade my cpu as well. I started to do some research on some of the new Intel cores that came out, but I was more interested with staying with AMD. I had seen that they had released the 9550 FX series and that grabbed my attention. 8 cores @ 4.7 ghz. That was double my Phenom II on cores and on speed. After researching mobos for that cpu, I settled on the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7. Gigabyte has always been a more reliable board maker than anybody elses when it came to AMD cpu's (IMO). I added 8 gigs of Corsair Vengeance gaming ram and swapped out my old style hdd for a Kingston 120gig ssd. I also upgraded my power supply to an EVGA SuperNova 1000 so I would have enough power not just for the cpu but also my dual ATI 7770 2gig graphic cards in XFire mode.
I built this mainly for gaming (duh) and it runs sweet. The liquid cooler that comes with the cpu is ok, but I'm looking to upgrade that to a Corsair Hydro Series H100i, I would much rather have 2 fans on one side of the radiator than 1 on each side pulling and pushing air flow.

This build totally rocks, and boots super fast. Gaming is smooth whether your running GW2, Skyrim, Crysis Warhead (Extreme Mode) Firefall, Defiance, Warframe, EVE Online (truly beautiful) or BF4. There is only one game that gives me problems and that is Kingdom of Amalur, but from what I have read on that game it is not the system but the game itself.

4 out of 5 eggsfast and a beast

Pros: it is fast and even with the liquid cooler it runs cool I haven't overclocked it and there is no need to it chews anything I throw at it

Cons: installing the cooler bracket is a pain you have too push it down and the hoses are stiff

5 out of 5 eggsFast but runs hot

Pros: This processor definitely gets the job done, whether I'm multitasking on my dual monitors with different games or doing real time video editing during streaming I have had no issues with this baby handling whatever I throw at it.

Cons: This CPU like most AMD processors runs a bit hot even with the liquid cooling. For me it's not a problem as I had a spare 200mm fan laying around but make sure you have a case with good airflow to keep it properly cooled.

Other Thoughts: As a side note the liquid cooling that comes with this is a pain to get on the board, I had to have another tech at my work help me push the bracket down so I could get the screw to reach and it is a snug fit. I am worried about what might happen if one of those ever comes lose. not enough to take off an egg but it's definitely something to keep in mind, you may want to get the CPU by itself and get the liquid cooling somewhere else.

4 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-9590 Vishera 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ 220W 8-Core Desktop Processor

Pros: 8 cores 5ghz

Cons: The processor is great and if you order this with the stock watercooler then here is the issue i had with mine. Overall the performance is great and it does what is intended to do and does it well. No problems with that. However, the installation of the radiator and fans caused some unwanted worries. The slots for the screws on the radiator are horribly crafted. They stripped with very littler force when mounting the piece inside my case. I needed to add gripping tape and carefully harness this radiator to make sure is was in a solid stable state. I'm dreading the day when my safety measures fall apart and I witness the destruction when it unmounts.

So if you choose this processor i recommend using some other cooler for this. Its safer. For the moment everything works fine but you never know.

Other Thoughts: Works well. The cooler is very risky though.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat but

Pros: fast like nobodies business. Its actually kind of offensive.
Surprisingly doesnt run insanely hot
Great compute chip.

Cons: Runs hot, even under the inoS.
Will burn out cheap boards.
Very little OC headroom, since cluded liquid cooler
Included liquid cooler is a Pboosting clock speed even a little turns this thing from a CPU to a central heating system for a skyscraper.
Junk for gaming.

Other Thoughts: So, before anyone takes the cons too seriously, the pros of this monster far outweigh the cons. Its a beast of a chip, had it folding for 3 months and it was pulling in about half of what a standard GPU could do (somewhere between 14-15k pts per day). Beat the living #2 out of my i7-3770k clocked at 4.8ghz. If you need a chip that is primarily for use as a mathematical machine, this is THE king. Period,.

Now for the downsides:
My basement was insanely hot compared to usual temperatures due to this thing heating up so much under load. It was kind of funny. It also managed to kill my crosshair V F-Z once, because the heatsinks on it werent enough to mitigate the insane amounts of heat coming off the mosfets. I actually had a 2nd degree burn from just touching them. I rma'd the board and got a new one since it was covered under the warranty. And then theres that !@#(Y^&!@# liquid cooler that cant seem to handle anything above 80C, and the software included to control the heatsink does not work. This is AFTER reinstalling the software, Windows, trying 3 different versions of the same software (Asetek's Chill Control V utility) and just plain resetting everything. I went and got an h100i just to replace that nightmare of a block.

All in all, great chip, junky cooler. Would definitely recommend to anyone in need of a good, solid compute chip.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Absolutely, awesome, CP. It's mounted it on an Asus Sabertooth Gen 3 Motherboard, with a Darkpower Pro 10, 1200Watt power supply. With this 220W rated CPU, you don't want to sell yourself short on power.

Cons: These aren't really cons as much as things to look out for on this CPU. Getting this monster stable is a very tricky undertaking, so I hope you know your way around the inner workings of a PC, it will be needed. The good news, is that it can be stabilized, and once done, OC'ing it is fairly easy. I've had mine as high as 5.7; but, prefer to run it at 5.2. This is on all 8 cores.

I removed the Asetec cooler that came with it, not long after installing it and ended up putting it on my daughters rig, housing an AMD 8350. I opted for a Cooler Master Glacier instead; due, to the noise levels of the other cooler, and the (what I feel) was a rather funky fan connection system.

Other Thoughts: Definitely not for the faint of heart or a beginner, as this unit is built as an extreme. If you are just curious or not sure what you are doing around the inner workings of a PC, I really don't recommend getting the 9590, as you'd probably be better served with the 8350. It's not nearly as temperamental, or touchy as the 9590, which takes some getting used to.

3 out of 5 eggsFX-9590

Pros: Ubuntu and Windows are both screaming on this, and games love it.

Cons: The water pump that comes with it can't be opened. Not sure what mixture is in there, and there is no way to refill it. A very poor design choice.
