FX9590 not playing ball

 Share

I'm testing an FX9590 on a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 rev 3.0 (one of the boards that supports it), however having some trouble. The system is not stable at stock speed (4.7GHz) under Prime95, with or without XMP on. The PSU is a Corsair TX850, and temps are fine. I tried to lower the multiplier but anything other than 23.5 will not boot. Any ideas how to get this thing working?

You could try a different set of ram.

 

Where does this cpu come from? Maybe it's DOA...

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I doubt it's VRMs as the errors are happening in the first minute or two of running. RAM is also tested elsewhere.

You need to test the Memory in this Board.

 

And what Heatsink are you using?

What BIOS Version??

I don't think Memtest will allow me to isolate RAM problems from CPU problems.

If you have an issue with your memory Memtest will rule this out at least, you can then move on to more invasive testing. Its worth doing trust me, i resolved an issue for me in confirming my first set of memory in my new build was bad.

Ok so an update after some more testing:

 

I ran an FX9370 in the board and that was fine, so I'm sure the RAM is fine now.

I ran the FX9590 in a Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 and that was fine, so I'm sure the CPU is ok.

Put the FX9590 back in the 990FXA UD5 and errors within 1 minute.

 

So it seems like the motherboard cannot run this CPU despite being cleared to run it. It can only run up to the 9370, but the extra power needed by the 9590 does it in.
