ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Plenty of room for multi-card setups
- Very user friendly BIOS
- A simply amazing overclocking experience
- Excellent cooling of the board itself
- Runs my 9590FX without any issues

Cons: I haven't found any yet

Other Thoughts: Very useful board if you enjoy overclocking, or want to do a multi-card setup.

AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7 GHz Socket AM3+ 220W FD9590FHHKWOF Desktop Processor - Black Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Tons of power
- Barely sweats running high-end games
- Very enjoyable to overclock once you learn how to tame it

Cons: - This CPU can be extremely touchy
- Overclocking is not for the weak of heart
- Requires liquid cooling / top of the line air cooler
- 200W so it requires a good power supply

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend upgrading to this CPU only if you have a high-end motherboard. As others have stated, some boards have trouble controlling this thing, and an outdated board won't stand a chance.

Also, this chip can run fine with air cooling if you have something along the lines of a Noctua DH-14, and a well vented case.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Awesome EVGA warrenty
- Truly a fully modular power supply
- Plenty of well made cables
- Durable sleeves on cables
- Very sturdy case design
- Good price for the wattage
- Surprisingly efficient

Cons: After almost a year of use, I still have no complaints.

Other Thoughts: This thing is so silent, that the trickling of my water cooling system makes more noise.
