    Probably closer to $400 once you factor in foreign exchange fees :upset:

    Looks like they have released a new SKU for the 9370, complete with liquid cooling kit

    SKU FD9370FHHKWOX

    AMD FX 9370 8-CORE BLACK EDITION CPU, 4.4GHz, Turbo Core up to 4.7 GHz, Cache 16MB, Socket AM3+, 32nm, TDP 220W, NO FAN, WITH Liquid Cooling Kit)


    starting $288 on staticice.

    Unsavoury TDP aside, there's certainly a lot better value in that! Would like to know if it's the same as the old kit they used to offer on the 8150

    $299 on PCCG. Cooler is 2x120, but no brand mentioned, would be interested to find out. You would need all of that rad for 220 TDP, but given the cost of the cooler that makes the chip pretty cheap. Not bad value actually, although I think I will probably stick with Intel :)

    I picked up a 9370 last week. The cooler is the Asetek 570LC / Corsair H70.

    http://www.asetek.com/desktop/cpu-coolers/570lc.aspx

    Tis the same one they were offering with the old 8150 in some markets.:cool:

    providing you keep the fan speed down, OR run it in push only (single fan) it can be very quiet. Run it at high RPM with both fans and its crazy loud. really no need to
    Though.

    Put it this way.. a stock 9370 with this cooler, on its default profile is quieter than an 8350/8320 with its stock air cooler, despite the huge TDP difference

    Or you could get push-pull noiseblockers (or whatever flavour you prefer) which would improve airflow and reduce noise simultaenously...

    Hmm... I thought the cooler was a 240mm cooler for some strange reason. So my H100 would probably cool it better then?

    yeah my mistake, i said it was a 2x120 cooler, misread it, its a 120 with 2 fans. The H70 is a pretty good cooler though, and with PWMs its pretty quiet. I've used one to cool a 5GHz 3770K with no worries, but thats still gotta be half the temp of one of these 220 TDP beasts.

    Your H100 would definitely cool it better.

    Although my H100 only does pull due to my case limitation.

    Can anyone advice if my PSU is sufficient for me to upgrade to a FX 9360? Or am I better off just getting the FX 8350? Thanks

    Should be fine. It probably doesn't use more power than your current processor at its current overclock.
