I would like to find out what motherboard would you recommend for processors FX 9590 and FX 9370. Since the calculated heat capacity for it is 220W. Some forums write that on the SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 this processor works fine, but on the manufacturer's website states that only supports processors up to 140W. Thanks in advance.

So for there's only three boards out that can support these monsters and they are Asus's crosshair V Formala-Z, Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 and ASRock 990FX Extreme9.

I would't drop one of these 220W cpu's on my Sabertooth even though it might handle it, it will just put too much stress on the board.

Thanks for the reply. What about the SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0? This motherboard does not pull this processor?

I would only use an FX-9000 series CPU on a mobo that has been approved by the maker for these 220w TDP processors.

I do not know which Asus mobos have been approved but Asus sales/tech should be able to provide an accurate, official response via e-mail or phone.

Asrock has approved the Extreme9 and 990FX Fatality and provided the necessary BIOS to support the FX-9000 series CPUs.

Gigabyte AM3+ mobos with the "FXA" designation should all support the FX-9000 series mobos as these are updated models with revised VRM circuits.

To be certain you are considering the correct mobos ALWAYS check the CPU compatibility online listing at the mobo maker's website. The prior generation Giga AM3+ mobos have an insufficeint VRM circuit to even handle OC'd 8-core FX processors - so be certain exactly what you are buying when choosing a mobo for the FX-9000 series CPUs.

The Crosshair V Formala-(Z) dose have the FX-9000 series cpu's on its cpu support list and its the only one from Asus that can support these cpu's.

looking at the next gen consoles, I probably can make do with my current overclocked X4 CPU, but I was considering 8 cores but no rush yet.

me i have to consider my video cards too

even metro last light is playable

According to the ASUS web site the the following motherboards show support for the FX-9370 & FX-9590 processors:

SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0
CROSSHAIR V FORMULA-Z
M5A99FX PRO R2.0

There is also the following warning:

"Due to the high TDP, please be noted there are limitations while using this CPU(i.e. special thermal required..)"

While the FX-8320/8350 are the best performance value, prices on the FX-9000 series are dropping, but they still require the appropriate mobo and CPU cooler to deal with a 220w TDP, which means they are primarily for entertainment purposes vs. just highend computing use.
