AMD FX 9370 H20 Cooled AM3+ 8C DT 220W BE H2O Processor FD9370FHHKWOX
Although this model might not quite be able to match the performance of the FX-9590, it’s a great second option and a chip that can provide you with excellent power at a slightly lower price. You get eight cores with this processor, which is as many as you’ll find from an AMD CPU. It runs at 4.4GHz out of the box, running nice and fast, but it is slightly slower than the 9590. You can boost the performance up slightly and overclock it to run a bit faster, but it’s not designed to be an exceptional overclocking CPU. It has 8MB of cache memory with a similar overall design and architecture to the 9590, just with a bit slower clock. The power requirements on this model are pretty high like that of the 9590, so keep that in mind. However, you’ll save about $20 choosing this option rather than the more expensive AMD CPU.
