Fx-9590 & Crosshair formula V issues

Hey there,

I decided to buy myself a new cpu for my computer as i really need the extra juice for music production and my phenom 2 1100t wasnt doing the trick.
i picked myself up a fx9590 as i was under the impression that i shouldnt have any compatibility issues.
on the asus website, it stated that the crosshair V formula- Z was definetly compatible( I dont have the Z) and after doing some research and asking around at a well know computer store in my area, they also felt it should be fine ( chip set is the same AM3+ and it can support any ffx 900 series cpu)
long story short, i installed the cpu and when i turned on my pc, the screen stayed black and never loaded anything after that.
does anyone have any suggestions?? I was thinking updating the mobo bios may be the trick but before i do that, the real question is weather that would help or if the cpu and motherboard itself are just not compatible at all.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Best solution

I think you "should" be fine, will be a lot of stress on everything with that hot sob in the socket, but it SHOULD work, you will need to put the old chip back in, update bios, and perhaps chipset drivers from the Asus site, and then everything should just be plug and play afterwards.

make sure to use both 8pin and 4pin cpu power. Update the bios. Look for error codes during posting.

Thanks guys, i will try doing all of those things and see what comes of it. i have been weary of updating bios due to hearing how devistating it could be back a few years ago. hopefully if i do get it working, this cpu doesnt light my pc on fire! Ill write back when i see what comes of this.

lol good luck, just make sure to do a bios flash NOT in windows. I've heard horror stories too, but I've never run into an issue. That board is older than that processor so its almost guaranteed that it will need the update. Shouldn't set anything on fire but I would make sure my cooling system was up to par :)

I agree with the BIOS update. As for the cooling, I believe it comes with a closed loop water cooler correct? That should be more than enough. You shouldn't have to worry about overclocking because the 9590 is pretty much already maxed out

well this chip came as a standalone without any cooling device, however i have a corsair h80i for cooling. hopefully thats enough?

Well they originally sold a version without a cooling solution, then only sold it with the watercooler, and now they sell it both ways again, I just added that incase he go it without a watercooler.

As long as its properly installed I think it should be enough, just be sure to have some temp monitoring programs running in the background to be sure!

That should be more than enough to cool it!

okay so i updated the bios to the latest version, and did a cpu swap again. same thing happened. black screen . now i figure maybe i should try updating my cpu drivers. i am having a heck of a time trying to find where it is. i went here http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/CROSSHAIR_V_FORMULA/#s... and then to drivers and tools, selected my os and downloaded the chipset file (845mb) and brought everything there uptodate
when i opened it, it is amd catalyst install manager. i installed everything but it says nothing about a cpu driver.

if your cooling solution is not up to par you could always underclock the cpu to more manageable lvls till he can get better cooling but the h80 should do alright as long as his case has good fans . might want to double check your PSU though and give yourself ample head room . i just got one of these chips today and its like having a kerosene heater in my computer room i underclocked it till my liquid cooler gets here i couldnt wait to install lol.
