CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent cooling performance for FX-9370 01/30/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm

Pros: - 140mm
- Closed loop
- Simple to install. Fits easily in cases designed for 140mm

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My FX-9370 CPU paired with ASRock 990FX Extreme 6 at idle is around 28C. Under full core utilization the temps only reach a max of 48C (measured with CoreTemp). Impressive.

AMD FX-9370 Vishera 8-Core 4.4GHz Socket AM3+ 220W FD9370FHHKWOF Desktop Processor - Black Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Best of the binned Visheras available
- Incredible price / performance for multithreaded applications

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Paired with an ASRock 990FX Extreme 6 mobo makes an excellent image analysis workstation. I do a lot of multithreaded image analysis work and have always had excellent performance with the Vishera CPUs. I upgraded from a 8350 and the 9370 is performing about 30% faster in my image processing benchmarks.

People complain about the heat and power consumption but at idle it's almost identical to the 8350. With a Corsair Hydro H90 cooler my 9370 idles around 28C and under full peak core usage it's only around 48C.

ASRock 990FX Extreme6 AM3+ Northbridge: AMD 990FX Southbridge: AMD SB950 5 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Support for FX-9370 and 9590 CPUs
- Support for up to 64GB DDR3 2450
- High-end 24-bit Purity Sound 2 onboard audio with support for XFi-MB3 and DTS connect
- High end platinum caps and ESD protection
- Atheros GB LAN
- USB 3.0 header
- PS/2 support

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Another high-quality state-of-the-art motherboard from ASRock. One of the best AM3+ boards out there. I bought this for the FX-9370 support and onboard audio. No problems posting to the BIOS from the start. Haven't done any overclocking of the CPU yet but the BIOS has plenty of options as one might expect. The PS/2 support is a plus given the absence on a lot of new high-end boards these days. Supports the XMP profile for my G.Skill Trident X DDR3 1866 Cas 8 RAM.
