I havent read up on it, but you cannot normally use the 9xxx series in normal am3+ motherboards, as they draw too much power.
It would be a better move to get a 8320 with decent cooling. The 9590 is a overclocked 8320.

Your MoBo seems to be capped at 140W processors. The FX-9590 is a 220W part (holy mother of god!), so you probably should keep it away from your system.
I agree with vmN, the 8320 is a wiser purchase.

but i can purchase an crosshair 5 formula with am3+ to use an 9590, or is that too much in combination with 7870's in crossfire on bf4? should it bottleneck my cpu's then?

The 9590 is an awful bad purchase. You will be paying a hefty price for a CPU that is just a overclocked 8320 CPU. For gaming it's also an unbalanced purchase, as you will see small gains in most titles.

If you really want a faster FX processor, IMO you should buy a FX-8320 (and every parts you may need for that) and overclock it.

forget the 9590.
Go with the 8320. Why pay more for something you can do yourself within 5 minutes?
There is so many things wrong with buying a 9590.
Get the 8320, get a decent cooler might even get a SSD, and have more joy than a power-hungry 9590.

AM3+ CPUs can not be added to AM3 motherboards.

As said above. Forget the 9590 and go for the 8350. However you will need to get a new motherboard too.
