FX-9590 Voltage issues 4Ghz?

Ever since I have bought this processor I've had countless issues with it:

-It will not stay at core clock, only stable at 4Ghz!

     -When I set it to default settings in the Bios it freezes right after the computer POSTS

This is very disappointing, I am not getting the performance out of my computer that I should.

I don't know what else to tell you guys so here are my specs, BIOS version etc...

Processor: AMD FX-9590

Motherboard: Asus M5 A99FX 2.0

Graphics Card: Sapphire R9 290X Tri-X

RAM: 2x8 DDR3 802Mhz

PSU: EVGA 1200W P2                <<<< CLEARLY ENOUGH POWER

Case: Corsair 750D

Storage: Samsung 850 EVO 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD

AMD Software:




All input is appreciated, thank you.

Re: FX-9590 Voltage issues 4Ghz?

That motherboard was only able to run the FX-9xxx processors after a BIOS update.

What motherboard BIOS are you using?

Is that the only processor you have used on that motherboard?

If not, did you clear the CMOS when you installed the FX-9xxx processor.

Also, what CPU cooler are you using?  Has there been any issues with overheating?

Check for the correct BIOS version, clear the CMOS and set all motherboard settings to default.
