AMDís new 5GHz chip runs so hot it ships with watercooling

Quote:
If you purchase a brand new processor from Intel or AMD then it typically comes with a stock heatsink and fan in the box. This is more than adequate for cooling if you donít intend on overclocking the chip and silent running isnít a concern. AMD is bucking that trend, though, and shipping a new performance chip with a watercooling kit in the box.

AMD is resurrecting the FX-9590, which originally launched at the end of June last year, but it shipped with a stock air cooling solution. That meant you were limited as to how much you could push the performance of the chip without investing in more heavy duty cooling. This time around, the new FX-9590 wonít have the same issue as AMD is shipping it with the necessary watercooling kit to get all 8 cores humming.

New cpu with water cooling hmmmmmmmm. That almost sounds tempting. 8cores 5ghz. get a nice upgrade from my current 3.4ghz 6 core. $3000.00 nevermind lol .

It most likely wont be that bad. Amd is usually better at being afordable but im sure that water cooling will be included in the price somewhere.

Odd to see a press release on this. This h2o cooler/cpu has been on the market for almost a full year. Newegg ran a xmas special last year on these for $299. I picked one up and sold the Antec Kuhler H2O 920 cooler on evilbay for $100. Made for a cheap 9590.

Personally, if you have a high end cpu? you shouldn't even consider using stock cooling.

Maybe, just Maybe. That 5GHz CPU failed to beat the 3rd gen Core i7

Oh man, you are kidding me. How the heck can AMD do such an epic fail! An 8 core 5GHz CPU can't beat an old school Intel!

But in all seriousness I really hope one day AMD are competitive again one day as it will be good for the industry all round.
