    I use AS5 Ceramique and it works well for everyday and mildly OC'ed setups plus it's cheap and lasts a long time.

    With watercooling leaks and even failed pumps are always a risk, thats why when I did this DD build I kept it aircooled since I wasn't trying to push things to the extreme.
    Had originally planned to run my 8370 but that chip ran hotter than I liked so picked up an 8300 and all was good with it.

    Again the 9590's stock spec's for CPU voltage are just too high, the chip will run 4.7 with less voltage than AMD spec'ed for it. I'd start with 1.45v's and see what it does, then if it does fine drop it one voltage increment and retest, repeating this process until you find the point of instability. Once you find it I'd bump it back up by two increments and let it go, just going up a single increment may not be quite enough to restabilize it but two should either be right or just off the mark.

    The idea is to keep the chip runnning as cool as possible under load while giving it what voltage it needs to run and no more.

    FX 9590 is nothing more than factory overclocked FX 8350 chip, regarding the performance of FX 9590, you can get the same results on most FX-8350s with a decent motherboard and 30 seconds of OC in the BIOS.

    It's just my 2 cents.

    Always look beyond the limits...
