Do not fucking buy any AMD cpu running at 220 watts unless you have a server room in the Arctic.
These cunts run hotter than the surface of the sun.
In fact, I could probably blow up the sun, and replace it with this CPU, and nobody would fucking notice.
Actually, they would probably notice a small increase in temps around the world... because they run that fucking hot.
Even with the top of the line water cooler from corsair, this chip still got so hot it would shut itself down because of the thermal protection.
I took it back to the shop today, and swapped it for the AMD FX 8350 (125 watt)
The 9590 would get past 70.C, idle at around 46.C
The 8350 using the same corsair H105 cooler runs at 38.C under the same load, idle at 30.C.
AMD clocked these chips a little high, and when pushed, and not kept in a fucking freezer, they fall over.
If you live anywhere below the polar regions, avoid buying the 220 watt AMD black edition chips.
Grab the 8350, and save yourself a thermal clusterfuck.
I give the AMD 9590 5 FUCK YOU's out of 5.
