Very good cpu. This is an upgrade from my FX-8350 which is great also and I overclocked FX-8350 to 4.4GHZ (same clock speed as new FX-9370) on air with Alpenfohn K2 mount doom, all stable but I just could not get it to 4.7GHz. So critics who claim you can get an FX-8350 for £100 cheaper and then OC it yourself to 4.7GHz, is not true because it all comes down to SILICON LOTTERY (I struck out on silicon lottery with my FX-8350!). This FX-9590 is cherry picked using the highest grade silicon and then factory overclocked by AMD to 4.7GHz and stable (turbo oc to 5GHz). CPU reaches 220W TDP only when oc'd to 5GHz or more. Intel sycophants criticised this a lot because of the 220W heat output, even though i7-4960X @ 4.6ghz consumes c.350W under load. They alleged FX9590 would require a custom water cooling kit or at the very least a top of the range AIO liquid cooler (eg - Corsair H100i). Total rubbish. The FX-9590 does not overheat at all. Even with my Arctic Freezer A30 air cooler (£30!), the FX9590 idles at 40c and load at 68c. My main air cooler is Alpenfohn K2 mount doom. After 1 hour use, idle is 33c. Last night after 1 hour ME3, cpu was 49c. After 30 mins Crysis3, cpu was 56c. Yesterday during daytime (nice, hot weather) cpu was 39c idle. I am using a cooler master storm trooper chassis with 9 high performance (and silent) Coolermaster jet-flo fans.

In Bios, following settings were automatically applied: CPU level up = cancel, CPU ratio = auto, AMD turbo core = auto, CPU/NB frequency = auto, EPU setting = auto, Xtreme tweaking = enabled, Cool n quiet = enabled, C1E = enabled, core C6 state = enabled, HPC mode = enabled, APM = auto. I have not changed any settings other than the RAM frequency from default 1333MHz to the full 2400 MHz (I have 4x4GB Team extreme RAM at 2400MHz).

If you are wondering whether to go for this CPU over the cheaper FX versions then I can say that my experience so far on the processor is very good. Have cranked Battlfield 4 PC video settings to high with excellent frame rates (AHCI SSD / SATA drives config and NVidia 760 GTX graphics card) Windows ratings give it 7.8 out of 7.9 max etc...Intel CPU reviews suggest better speeds for gaming at lower wattage but overall FX-9590 seems to do it for me.
Can confirm no overheating issues with 220w processor using Artic cooling 13 - no problems.

PassMarkCPU ratings place the FX-9590 in the top 25 high-end CPU's out of one hundred or more processor ratings.

Sample Benchmark ratings (Higher is better)
AMD FX-9590 4.70 Ghz = 10,517 rating (£240)
Intel i7-4960X 3.60 Ghz = 14,137 (£881)
Intel i7-3930k 3.20 Ghz = 12,096 (£356)
Intel i7-4770k 3.50 Ghz = 10,143 (£247)

Let's get a few things straight. This is not the fastest processor on the market, nor is the most efficient or easy to cool. It is, however, a very cool little thing, especially for an AMD fan like me. It does boost to the 5GHz mark quite often, and cooled by an H80i with two fans in push-pull, it stays below 60 degress even in prime95. It is quick enough for any sort of work load these days (again, there are quicker and more efficient options) and it is just a great achievement from AMD. If you have an AM3+ platform and you are looking for a bit more power, this is the fastest CPU you can get. And, with the recent price cuts, it actually is a good value deal as well. I love it, and I will keep for a few years, until AMD come up with a better one.

This is strongest CPU I ever had , moving from FX 8350 witch was already very good , working good with my ASUS Formula Z , I tested with many new games like Call of Duty Ghost , Guildwars 2 , Crisis 3 , Assassins Creed Black Flag , working perfect with my MSI GTX 780 Lighting. The only bad side is you need good cooler , I have good Noctua and is jus enough , sometimes with long gaming my CPU temperature rich 65-66 degrees and is 1st AMD CPU this is happened with , is all working fine , just some winning from my PC , also I have problem with stable over-clock over 5ghz , with boost on , but I guess is all depend of motherboard and memory , I guess my another step will be to buy Corsair water cooling system. Generally very powerful CPU equal to Good i7 , for a little les price , I don't do much benchmarks , but I easy rich 12000 in 3DMark 11 performance is enough for me for gaming and multimedia :)

I've had this CPU a few months now after replacing my AMD FX-4100 and haven't found any reasons to knock stars off the rating!
In terms of performance, the FPS increase (and especially the decrease in load times) in games like Battlefield 4 was noticeable immediately. Unfortunately now i'm being held back by my older GTX 560 GPU, but despite that, this processor has certainly pushed my PC forwards in terms of power.
It is true that, currently, not many games will use all of the 8-cores efficiently or even at all, but I decided to purchase this as a long-term investment as more games come to utilize it effectively.
Before buying I read many articles stating that this CPU NEEDS to be watercooled, however I can confirm that, for me anyway, without overclocking it any more than the stock CPU already is, that this CPU does not NEED water-cooling at all.
I use a Zalman CNPS8900 Quiet Fan for this CPU and it works perfectly.

In conclusion, this CPU has definitely provided a brilliant performance upgrade to my frequent usage of Photoshop, Sony Vegas or video games like Battlefield 4. It has remained cool even without water-cooling, and I am confident that as more games adapt to the 8-core arrangement, this will become a decent long term investment.
