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

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Great AMD Product

Pros: I'm really not understanding any bad comments about the FX-9590. $259 with water cooling, what a bargin! I'm using the Cooler Master 932 case with all the stock fans. Using the Asus Sabertooth 990FX with G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 1866Ghz using the Cooler Master V8 cooler with new install of Arctic Silver 5 grease. Its running cool temp's at 33c with the CPU fan running at 1590rpm. All fans set for silent running and purring along at around 483-503-471-850rpm's, very quiet as I have the computer no more than 12inches from me.

Cons: I have no issue with this factory clocked CPU.

Other Thoughts: I have 69 background processes and 7 apps running right now. The DRAM is actually running at 35c, just 2c higher than the CPU...which is still at 33c. I was gaming a bit earlier (Crysis 3 Hunter Edition) and the CPU temps hit 44c. Temp issues...I have none. Note(this is my second FX9590 with the other mounted in a Asus Crosshair V Formula -Z motherboard in a NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK case. Its another amazing case that really helps everything run cool. Enjoy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: I multitask everyday. Music and video editing, internet browsing and Netflix's. Open Word documents and paying bills, it makes no difference as the 9590 is as smooth as warm butter. I use 'Air' cooling and have no problems.

I use the Cooler Master HAF 932 case (3x230mm and 2x140mm fans). I use their Cooler Master V8 GTS cooler and I have zero issues. Cooler Master has a number of air coolers than works very well with this souped-up 8350 (ie9590). All is quiet and nothing seems stressed.

Cons: I have none

Other Thoughts: I've heard this is a souped-up FX8350 and that's great as I have no issues. All manufactures work to present as many interesting produced as it can.

This is one of them. I read this processor started out as a Intel priced $900. You can still buy an Intel CPU for $900 and I'm sure you would be happy, but competition, manufacturing updates and father time can help the customer. This fine CPU cost me just $254.99 (with cooler) today and AMD threw in a nice little game besides.

Now that's a killer deal, friends.

PS: this is my second FX9590, the first one updated a FX-8150 (motherboard Asus Formula V-Z) (3.6 GHz Eight Core Processor) but this processor is more than a 1Ghz faster and has added instruction set built in...a no brain'er!

This one went into the Asus Sabertooth 999FX R2 board and again air cooled with the Cooler Master V8 GTS (replacing a FX-4200 3.3GHz CPU)

5 out of 5 eggs9590

Pros: Freaking sweet! Seems to be running great so far! Temp at idle is like 29 degrees C and top i have recorded was 50 degrees C while running very high cpu game (dayz sa) for hours! I havent felt the need to oc it

Cons: A little intimidating from some reviews lolz

Other Thoughts: I decided on a sabertooth 990fx r2 mb and it has been a dream machine!

4 out of 5 eggsForget the Included Water Cooling System

Pros: It crunches simulators, games, and HD video editing with impressive speed, and I probably won't need to upgrade the processor for many years to come.

Cons: Be prepared to scrap the included 120mm dual-fan water-cooling system. This thing gets HOT just by looking at it. I should have done some more reading on the cooling challenges before getting the CPU with the WC system included. The WC system can't keep up with the heat with system at anything above idle, and the loud drone from the fans are anoying. Before upgrading it the day after I got it up and running, I thought hard about a 240mm radiator, but went for a 360mm just to be sure, and to help keep the noise down by running the three fans a low speed. I also had to replace my case to accommodate a radiator larger than 120mm.

Other Thoughts: Also be prepared to upgrade your power supply. AMD recommends a 1000 watt minimum. I'm running my existing Corsair CX750M, and while my RC flight SIM only has 4 of the cores hitting about 60%, my system power draw peaks around 450 watts. If all 8 cores were very busy, I think my power supply could go over its power budget.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great AMD product

Pros: The FX9590 was crazy easy to install including the liquid cooling kit which was different then i had watched in videos. Metal brackets now hold it to the motherboard. When not under load it makes almost no sound at all, under heavy load it gets a little louder but still very quiet. It is crazy fast, and the temps are great for the medium size case I have, the highest it has hit is 60C. Just awesome all around.

Cons: Nothing really. Only negative is I have the Asus Sabertooth 990FX v1 and it does not seem to like turbo mode, but turn it off in bios and it runs perfect at 4700. Again this is not a negative towards the FX9590 just info for anyone in my shoes.

Other Thoughts: Buy it!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat unit

Pros: Great processor, eight cores tear through everything I throw at it.

Cons: Not many games optimized to take advantage of eight cores currently, so this may be a bit of overkill. Water cooling radiator is thick, fans are loud and the cooling unit in general sucks. Chill control malfunctions and is spotty at best. You are much better off purchasing your own water cooling solution. Deducted one egg for shoddy cooler. Processor though is 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsA processor you need for Mersenne Prime!

Pros: Processor Idles at 35-50 Degrees Fahrenheit, and under max load, keeps under 120F (With included water cooling). Can handle any modern game at *any* setting. Just have to have coinciding RAM and GPU strength to match.

Cons: None, other than it is vastly over-rated by it's Intel Equivalent.

Other Thoughts: If I had a Server Motherboard, I'd get another.

4 out of 5 eggsNo instructions included

Pros: THE 9590 CPU Black Edition stands on it's own. I would give it a 5 but no instructions for the coolermax water cooler.

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!!!!
