Question  compatability by Tom

do all these parts work together? and is there a cheaper motherboard i could use for this processor


Answer by shaund on Sunday, July 19, 2015
Hi Tom,

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.

 Mammoth Cpu by Pc Pete

I have been using this CPU for some time and I have never felt the need to overclock this beauty. Running 4.7ghz 8core straight out of the box is simply brilliant, Yes this does need an aggressive cooling solution like corsair h100i or above and yes it does mount up on cost but to a true pc enthusiast or gamer the price shouldn't be an issue at all.... As in the words of Tim the Toolman Taylor MORRREEE POWERRRR.

Question  Question by derf

will this run on a Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P mobo plus a gtx 970 gpu?

Answer by shaund on Wednesday, April 29, 2015
The motherboard is not compatible, for this CPU it would be best to get a 990fx chipset motherboard as well as a very good aftermarket cooler.
