-Cooler Master Seidon 120M Liquid Cooling CPU Cooler - Enhance Cooling Performance (Single Standard 120MM Fan)

-8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1866MHz Dual Channel Memory (ADATA XPG V2)
-ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AMD 990FX ATX w/ UEFI Bios, XFast Technologies, GbLAN, 3x PCIe x16, 1 PCIe x1 & 2 PCI [-6]
- 600 Watts - Standard 80 Plus Certified Power Supply - SLI/CrossFireX Ready

  1. Well, I don't think your motherboard supports that CPU. Very few motherboards support the water heater that is the 9xxx series.
  2. Latest drivers?

    Yeah, the Extreme3 can barely get enough power to the 8320 with its poor 4+1 power delivery lol I'm 96.2% sure that's what's happening. You need a motherboard that can supply the right amount of power to that. This looks like it was copy/pasted from a pre-built's webpage. If I were you I would contact them and have them send you a motherboard that is capable of fully powering the 9370.
