I would like to hear some experiences aobut rendering (i.e. with v-ray) with this processor. I have a coolermaster seidon 120xl and when I render with this cpu temps soar, so I have to underclock it.
The FX-9000 series CPUs are 220w vs. the normal CPUs that are only 125w. As such you need a proper cooler that can handle the heat generated by the FX-9000 series CPUs. There are many threads here on cooling the FX-9000 series CPUs. Below are some threads that may be of interest to you. They should provide you with a wealth of knowledge on what is required to cool your CPU properly.
