hether you own an existing ASUS 990FX/AM3+ motherboard such as the ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z, Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 and M5A99FX Pro R2.0, you can drop the new FX9590 or FX9370 in without needing a BIOS update!
Whether ROG, TUF or ASUS motherboard, you can run all day, every day at 5GHz and up to 2,400MHz DDR3 (as shown in the picture below).

Taipei, Taiwan—2 September, 2013
ASUS Announces Full Support for AMD FX-9000 Series Processors with Existing 990FX-Based Motherboards — No BIOS Update Required
Unprecedented stable support for flagship 5GHz processors with 2400MHz memory
Taipei, Taiwan (2 September, 2013) — ASUS today announced that its existing 990FX-based motherboards all support the new flagship AMD FX-9000 Series processors at memory speeds up to 2400MHz, without the need for a BIOS update.
The ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z, Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 and M5A99FX Pro R2.0 motherboards all feature AM3+ Socket with full support for AMD’s extreme-performance FX-9370 and FX-9590 processors. With eight-cores and unlocked clock speeds up to 5GHz, the FX-9000 Series requires incredible amounts of power and generates considerable heat — AMD recommends a 1200W power supply and liquid processor cooling.
Existing ASUS 990FX motherboards not only take the FX-9000 Series in their stride, straight from the box, but also support rock-solid stability at memory speeds up to 2400MHz with selected DDR3 DIMM kits — something that currently cannot be attained by 990FX-based motherboards from other vendors.
“ASUS is a market leader in the motherboard industry, thanks to the quality and innovation of its products,” said Roy Taylor, Corp Vice President of Global Channel Sales at AMD. “The out-of-the-box support for AMD FX-9000 Series processors offered by its 990FX-based motherboards is further proof of the solid design and high-quality components for which ASUS has long been renowned. In fact it’s so good, I used the same motherboard in my PC at home.”
