Description

I got tired of console gaming and all of the restrictions, not being able to participate in early access stuff, game mods, and missing the AMAZING pc deals. I didn't realize how much of a difference there really is. I play on PC much more than console now but still play console for some exclusives.

I previously had an AMD A10-5700 and expected terrible quality but was amazed with how much it could really output, it changed my whole view on AMD as a processor company. I will continually use AMD in desktops.

When building this I had a few hiccups, Asus board ethernet died and had to be replaced within a week of purchase. Didn't realize I needed a PSU with two 4+4 for OC'ing the 9590 so I traded up for little difference in price from a Corsair PSU. Upon installing the new board windows would not boot, attempted a reinstall to no avail so I proceeded to try things one by one until I figured out one RAM stick I had was incompatible causing the crashes.

Now the I knows;

I know a lot of people don't like AMD, if you can't keep an open mind don't comment.

Yes I know I need liquid cooling for OC on the 9590, it will come sometime in the near future.

Yes I've figured out ASUS' customer support for RMA is terrible.

Yes I know I don't need two separate standard HDD's

Yes I know 1300W is overkill.

If you have constructive comments or suggestions please comment I would love to hear them

Pics will be added tomorrow 6/28/2015

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing CPU, uses maybe 50% on Ultra on GTA V with browser windows open on alternate monitors and running monitoring software. If you wanna overclock this CPU you WILL need a liquid cpu cooler AND a board that support CPU 8pin +4 such as the Crosshair Formula Z.

Motherboard

The board itself is amazing, Easy overclocking, good clearance for bigger cards and support for an additional +4 CPU power and additional 12v molex for triple SLI.

WORST customer support, upon my first board dying I was told I had to pay full price for a replacement board until I sent back the old board, $239.99 is too much to randomly pay if my board dies to no fault of mine. If you are any sort of tight budget don't buy this board because if it dies you will be SOL, if you have a microcenter near you I firmly recommend you buy it there and get the 2 year protection it'll will save your life.

Overkill for the psu yes. But at that price, I can overlook it. Now you just need 2 more 970s to be able to make use of all that power!

I plan to get at LEAST one more, but it leaves a lot of cap space for extra goodies I can throw in later!

I'm gonna be building on that same board with that CPU, and was wondering if you had to plug any extra cords into the mobo for the CPU to power it fully and to overclock it. Also you ever plan on doing a cooling solution using liquid nitrogen? I've seen people get around 8 GHz doing that with that CPU and mobo

You do need two 4+4 cpu powers to OC and no plan as it's expensive

So the Cpu cooler is alright for the 9590 because thats what im building and im seeing everyone say that it will overheat and to terrible. So did it preform alright? I mean for now since im on a budget I have to get a cpu fan but in the future i will get a water cooler cpu.

"Intel is the best, yada, yada, yada, I won't listen to reason, Intel is the best, I've never heard of reason, Intel's marketing works on me the best"

OK. That's 90% of the idiots on this site. Are you overclocking that 9590?

I will be overclocking it after I purchase an h100i gtx. The 212 doesn't keep it as cool as I'd like it.

You better make use of all that extra wattage from your psu, your comp is probably only using around 500w right now, your psu will be less efficient, and it will give you a slightly larger electric bill. But still a great choice for future upgrades if you plan on 2way or 3way sli in your system.

I appreciate that, I honestly didn't even check the air flow when I installed >.>

I appreciate it, I've seen a lot of people on here go on rants about first time builders and everything they did wrong so I decided it's better to be said by me haha
