Probably closer to $400 once you factor in foreign exchange fees
Looks like they have released a new SKU for the 9370, complete with liquid cooling kit
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
Hey guys ,whats the deal with the FX 9590 just notice on PCCG has had a huge price drop $399,was it not $1000?.I guess it was way over priced upon release ?
$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
the brand is Asetek for the cooling i wonder if you can flog that off later and use custom looks like i've found my next upgrade
How would that compare to my h100 I wonder...
Your H100 is an Asetek
I picked up a 9370 last week. The cooler is the Asetek 570LC / Corsair H70.
Tis the same one they were offering with the old 8150 in some markets.
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
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...
problem is there only a handfull of boards that can take the chip and i am loathe to replace both at the moment
now if i could throw one on my ol ud5 rev 1 i would
Clear your PM box
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.
anyone played with one of these under LN2?
this guy apparently hit 8.2ghz
fck me over backwards...
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.
Has there been an official price drop on the FX-9000 series chips or is this just a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale?
AMD FX 8-Core Black Edition FX-9590 (FD9590FHHKWOF)
AMD FX 8-Core Black Edition FX-9370 (FD9370FHHKWOF)
(clickbait: the FX-9590 for $280 and the FX-9370 for $200)
No coolers though
got rid of my 2011 gear,currently running an i7-930 in a evga x58sli mobo is it worth buying a 9370 and mobo or not ? google seems to think not
