The purpose of this post is for people to reply success stories of running a FX 9590/9370. Everything I read said that the FX 9590 demanded water cooling and air cooling is not even a viable option. After some searching I was able to find a few posts about undervolting and how it can really bring down power consumption along with temps. So I purchased a FX 9590 from Micro Center for $179.99 and used the CM 212 EVO that I already had. I have been using it for a month now; gaming hours on end with no stutters, stops/lockups, or BSOD. Under full load I am at 51 degrees Celsius. My case has lots and lots of air flow which I think helps quite a bit.
I was pretty exited about my results so I thought I should post about it so people know that these processors are getting a bad rap. I tried to post at tomshardware.com and wow..... I used to think that site was a great resource, but I really have my doubts now that I have directly dealt with people on that site.
