Will my Crosshair V Formula-Z support/handle the FX-9000 series?

High there! This question I don't think should be too hard to answer but,
(I know there isn't much info about the cpu yet) will my ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z support or will I be able to use the FX-9000 series? It has the AM3+ socket and does support the FX-8000 series.

I couldn't find any info about the socket of the new lineup and because it has not been released yet it isn't on the support list

of my mobo yet...

Anyway, if someone know the answer I'd be really glad to know :)

Have a nice day!

  1. Best answer
    you mean the 220w extreme models? there has been info circling around that the 9000 won't be released to consumers. if you are talking about steamroller when it comes out, it probably will be fine.
  2. Your board is like the lass boss of AM3+ motherboards. It can handle any AM3+ CPU you put on it. It's just the matter of time before Asus pull out a BIOS update for your board to support FX 9000 series.
  3. I read that they were not going to be available at retail due to the 220W TDP. You can only buy one in a complete system. (which will have a compatible mobo)

    if they are available in prebuilt systems with mobos that can support them, then the parts will find their way to consumers.
  5. Wow! thanks for all the good, quick replies! Helped a lot thank you

    Even though the FX-9590 will be based off of the same Piledriver architecture,(And most likely the same AM3+ Socket). Your motherboard is rated for 140 Watts. I doubt you will be able to pull off a 220 Watt CPU on that motherboard(Even though it is the best AM3+ Motherboard on the market).

    I have the same board Tech Specs says maximum of 140w CPU's the new ones are 220w, how will this effect?
  9. No it won't because the max voltage the motherboard can handle for a cpu is 150w or so...

    Yes this motherboard is one of the few that can handle the processors. You can also purchase the 9370, and the 9590 at Tiger Direct. You will need something like an H100i to be able to cool it. There is no stock coolers for them.

  12. I was going to do the same, but luckily I read that it can only support 140w max. lol thx and good luck!
