Expert Review

This is a great processor overall that offers tremendous performance right out of the box, and if you're interested in overclocking, then this might be the best pick for you. It's an eight-core chip that runs at 4.0GHz as soon as you install it into your computer as well as 8MB of L2 cache memory and another 8MB of L3, which keeps your system running fast. Technically, it's slower than the FX-9590 and side-by-side comparisons of them would certainly demonstrate this. However, if you really want ultimate performance, you can overclock this processor with a little work and liquid-cooling and have it running just about as fast as the 9590. The lower power requirements on this chip also make it ideal for overclocking, even though it uses the same 32nm architecture as the 9590. Since this chip costs quite a bit less than the 9590, it’s a tremendous value as long as you’re comfortable with overclocking.Rating: 4.5/5
