CPU : FX-9590
Board : ASrock 990FX extreme 9
Memory : 4 x GSkill F3-19200CL10Q2 (32GB)
Linux or Windows - no matter
changing memory around - same behaviour
using ASUS Crosshair V - no change.
Any idea ?
This post proves the point I made here, Re: Fx 9590 should I? . I think it's a crap shoot whether this processor runs or not. Half the folks seem to have freezing issues and the other half think those folks are dumb because their 9590 runs fine.
Have you tried exchanging one of the working processors with one of the freezing ones to see if they run? If so, what were the results of each machine?
Here is another post I contributed toward, Re: AMD FX 9590 y does it freeze my pc...
Is that a Formula-z motherboard? If so, that is what I have. If not then it may be that your mobo doesn't support the processor because of the power needs.
Yes Formula Z - just to try a different board type .
One system was running for 3 weeks at 70° at max load.
An Alpenföhn Gotthard was used but now we use a liquid cooler
with 54°C at max load.
OK I will try one of the suspicious CPUs in the rock stable system.
I hate to do that, but it's the only way to be sure.
Please let me know how it comes out. I just got my RMA 9590 and installed it. It's still freezing. Im convinced that it has something to do with the processor pairing with the motherboard and the mobo is slightly off but it only reveals itself with this processor because it's so demanding. It may be power related, I'm not sure.
Im thinking about ordering a new mobo just to test it. I've tried a FX 4350 in the same PC and it runs fine.
I believe I have solved the issue with the FX-9590, at least mine has been running fine for a few days now. I believe the change that made the processor stable was turning off turbo. I also reset my cmos beforehand, changed AI overclock to D.O.C.P., and loaded an xmp profile for my RAM but I believe that the key was turning off the turbo. I'm going to do some testing to make certain and I'll let you know how it comes out.
