Problems with FX-9590 on AsRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional

Question asked by allanusc on Aug 9, 2015

I've had an AsRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional motherboard for quite a while and I've been running it with the latest BIOS and an AMD FX-8320 with no problems at all.

A few days ago I bought an FX-9590 and installed it, along with a new Cooler Master Seidon CPU Liquid Water Cooling System.


The FX-9590 is on my mobo's CPU compatibility list and I am using the same 32 GB of Patriot VIPER PC3 1866 MHz (4x8GB) RAM that worked flawlessly with the FX-8320.


After the upgrade, my system freezes up completely within half an hour of booting up.


Initially I assumed this was a heat issue but my hardware monitoring software and the mobo hardware monitor (in BIOS) shows that the CPU has not exceeded 45 C.


In repeated testing, the system seems to freeze randomly, sometimes at 43 C and  sometimes at 32 C (that's just 89 F!).


I am running Windows 10 Pro so my other thought was that this was a software issue so I Windows 8.1 and the system still freezes.


I did a totally clean install of Windows 10 Pro and it still freezes.


Does anyone have any ideas?


Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
