Gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 by Sanchez
Hello, will this CPU work on this board, im currently running FX 8350 @ 4.5, but ive heard that this CPU is hard on the VRM's ?
If not what board would you suggest
The 990fxa-UD3 will work fine with this CPU.
fx 9590 by tony
would this be o.k with zalman reserator 3 max dual water cooler
Yes that would be fine.
motherboard question by Redtip
Will this run on the Asus Crosshair V Formula Z AMD 990FX motherboard? I notice a difference in the supported cpu wattage. but the mother board appears to be the flagship board...
The CPU will be compatible with that motherboard after some tweaking in the BIOS, this CPU is a bit of a special case in terms of compatibility, you will require a BIOS update on any board that you purchase for it and it requires quite a high end cooler to keep it stable.
Cooler? by Connor
Hi I read that this doesn't come with a cooler but then videos on YouTube show that it comes with a water cooler? Just checking does it come with a cooler at all?
There is a watercooled edition of this CPU that has a bundled Cooler however this is just the CPU that you would be purchasing.
compatability by Tom
do all these parts work together? and is there a cheaper motherboard i could use for this processor
Those items will all be compatible, the 9590 requires a 990fx chipset to work so that will be the best prices mobo for the CPU. The H80i is back in stock now as well, for that case I would choose that over the H90.
