The ASUS Crosshair supports the FX 9590, the agent you spoke to might not have been aware of that. You can find a complete list of our compatible motherboards here: http://support.amd.com/en-us/search/faq/295
For additional help, please visit our Support Forums as the moderators there are extremely knowledgeable and can help you pick out the best motherboard for your needs!
Thank you for answering my question.
i have read on the ASUS website, as stated earlier, that it actually is compatible. maybe i just got a bad MB twice.
the link you provided was very useful to!

t3cn1k I just purchased ASRock Fatal1ty 970 Performance AM3+ ATX AMD Motherboard Fatal1ty 970 Performance - Micro Center today actually. It will support the 9590. There are quite a bit to choose from as far as what I see.

The ASUS Crosshair V formula-Z is most definitely capable of handling the FX9590, but the FX9590 in and of itself isn't a CPU that tends to work well out of box without making changes in the bios to ensure its stable operation. If you open a thread in the processors section of the AMD Community assistance forums, I or another knowledgeable volunteer technician would be happy to assist you with your issue.
Please make sure that you provide us with your complete specifications as listed here. Title your thread something like "Requesting assistance stabilizing FX9590 on an ASUS Crosshair V formula-Z", so users with the proper knowledge will gravitate to the thread to provide you with assistance.
Anyways, have a nice day.
Like others said that mobo supports your CPU. In the other hand that mobo has LOTS of issues. On paper is one of the best mobo for AMD but also the worst in terms of quality. I have it paired with an fx 8350 and the first one i got had to return it due to bad vcrore voltrage, the second one is not any better. I dont have the vcore voltage issue like the first one but the CPUI fan control is busted, it always at max fan speed. Not a problem for me but some ppl dont like when the fans makes lots of noises especially in low end task like playing a video or web surfing. If you do some research on the mobo you'll find all the issues been reported, and trust me, it is a quit a lot of issues. Good luck.
ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R3.0 was release in July 2016 so that mobo is just few months old
and Supports CPU up to 220 W and 8 +2 Digital Phase Power Design
and I think that is the last mobo for AM3+ we're going to get from ASUS
I actually have it and I love it
and according to ASUS CPU support list for the SABERTOOTH 990FX R3.0
the FX-9590(FD9590FHW8KHK, 4.7GHz is fully supported
the negative part is that the ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R3.0 is expensive ($199 US Dollars)
but if you plan to stay with a AM3+ cpu for +5 years still worth it
and plus Asus put 5 years warranty on that mobo so anything happen on their side is cover by that
if you need more information check the ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R3.0 reviews or go to ASUS web page
i have GA-990FX Gaming -> pretty good MoBo & can take a FX-9590
