    Just tried that at my current settings, and while windows boots and loads basic programs, applying any load at all results in an immediate hard lock.
    I then increased the CPU voltage in one step increments 3 times, re-testing between each adjustment. All three attempts resulted in the same immediate lockups under load.

    Lastly, I adjusted the CPU/NB voltage in one step increments 3 times, re-testing in between as before. Same lockups again. Bollocks.

    Wow, that's quite the jump. I can certainly give that a try if it's safe.

If so try setting them to intake as pulling cool air from outside instead of pushing hot are through the already hot radiators you should get a big drop in temp as I did this when my Temps where that high on my old system.
    Just checkin. Good Luck, Nice build almost as Purdy as mine
    I was thinking about doing this, but I would then be faced with problems keeping the northbridge and VRM cool on the motherboard, as well as problems cooling the pcie bridge chip and power section of the 295x2.

    The air that comes out of the 295x2's radiator is extremely hot when gaming or doing opencl work; far hotter than the CPU radiator in fact. When I first noticed the sheer volume and temp of the air coming from the GPU radiator, I likened it to a hairdryer. lol

    If I configured both radiators to pull in air from the outside, it would be up to the two 140mm fans in the front of the case to exhaust the hot air.

    Currently, under gaming load my temps hover in the mid to high 50s, and idle sits around 38~40c. Only if I really beat the hell out of the processor does it shoot as high as 70c, which is still technically within spec. With the case wide open and a floor fan blowing right into the case, the temps are just about the same. Maybe a degree or two lower at best.

    I'm starting to think the 9590 was a half-assed effort from AMD. If 2dcomplex had 2 separated 9590s so far and he cant get it stable with a nice roomy case and a monster PSU *AND* a superior 3rd party water cooler then something is really wrong with AMD's binning of these factory overclocked CPUs.

    I'm sorry; just getting rather irritated at all the money I dropped into correcting these issues that shouldnt have existed with a stock CPU in the first place. And I said to myself "Listen, you know this CPU is a power hungry beast, get the best 990FX mobo you can from the local Microcenter, and get a powerful PSU". And yet, still problems. Thats just not right, IMHO. So very disappointed in AMD.

    And probably the most irritating thing is the i7-3770k system I built right next to it that has run flawlessly since day one, outperforms the 9590 in just about any benchmark, and uses like half the power. Sigh. I long for the days when the Thunderbird Athlons laid waste to Intel's silly Netburst P4s.

    OK I'm done, LOL.

    I'm right there with you man. I trust Jim Keller to deliver the goods in a year or so though. If anyone can turn around AMD's high end x86 effort, it's him.

    As they say, not all similar chips give the same results. I have an FX-9590 running stable @5.2GHz 24/7. Maybe I'm lucky!

    This may be overkill, and call me a glutton for punishment, but I'm going to experiment with two other boards.

    I borrowed a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 from a friend during all of this, and a quick test revealed that it behaved FAR better with everything at default/auto settings. I didn't experience the random freezing when the system shifted to the 5GHz turbo frequency. That seems to implicate the board, but I need more data.

    So here's my plan for a better understanding of what's going on:

    1. Bump the CPU/NB voltage quite a bit as suggested to see if it's an issue with my memory on the Formula-Z.
    2. Try different memory on the Formula-Z beyond the G.Skill 1600 and 1866 memory I have already tried. Something known to work.
    3. More extensive testing with the 990FXA-UD7.
    4. Obtain an ASRock 990FX-Extreme9 and test with that as well.

    Hrm, maybe I will try that when I get some more spare cash...although you would think the CHVFZ would be of considerably higher quality components than either of those boards.....

    I'm guessing the ASRock will be crap. I'm really only interested in testing it.
    I'm highly impressed with the physical build quality of the 990FXA-UD7, but the BIOS and the software package really sucks. Gigabyte hasn't released an update for the BIOS since 9/13, which is ridiculous. I'm positive there are numerous improvements they could make based on support feedback.

    Oh, dont get me started on Gigabyte---it took them forever to release a full UEFI interface for my G1.Sniper.M3 (which the 3770k is running on), it used to be what they called a "Hybrid UEFI/BIOS", and when they finally did release a full UEFI interface, it looks like the original BIOS screen with a fancy font/different colors, and sluggish as all hell. AFAIK, thats their NEWEST UEFI interface for most of their boards. Board is rock stable though, which I suppose is what really matters.

    Hey 2dcomplex, I think I'm going to give your settings a try. Do you recommend using them? Did you maybe fine-tune something meanwhile?
