Description

Building primarily for Fallout 4 and Battlefronts. Have ridden my 8800GTX as long as possible. Time to retire it.

A 9590 with a 212 EVO?......

What?

His CPU might have already gone up in flames...

Well, it tells my my computer has crap graphics, which I already know(old intel iGPU + Dual core Pentium + DDR2 4gb).

Check the pics. Seems to be working as it should.

Mine was on a 212 evo for a couple months with no issues at all.

With the three front case 120mm fans and a pull push setup on the cooler with a 140mm on the exhaust side this thing stays pretty cool. Idles around 30c and no higher than high 70s low 80s under load. Big case helps too.

That is pretty high, even for that CPU.

That is really high, the Evo 212 is rated for a max of 180W TDP, the FX 9590 is 200W TDP and you really shouldn't go above 70C with that cpu, you need a better cooler asap.

It doesn't get above 70 under load. I included in the build pics cpu temp test results. When its working overtime it might dip into the high 60s but thats after hours of gaming w/ other app running in background. and it comes right back down after the fans speed up to compensate. Under load it operates between 45-55

This is a nice build, but I HIGHLY recommend that you use liquid coolers on that FX-9590 of yours. A lot of people have tried to use even the best air coolers to try and air cool that thing only to have it end up in flames. If you don't want a fire hazard, replace that hyper 212 evo with a closed loop water system (I understand your fear of water near your hardware, but I use a H100i liquid cooler and all is fine). I'm telling you man, you don't want your pride and joy to end up in flames.

I work at an IT company and all my hardware guys were like it should be fine with the EVo but the general consensus from the online community is it need better cooling. Would underclocking be a viable solution until I replace the cooling components?

  • 55 months ago

Yes definitely. At the clock speed, the 212 should be able to handle it safer. Past 5.0 Ghz and above, it's a fire hazard.

Yeah gonna clock it down to 4.2ish I'm thinking. Will pick up cooler. Thinking about the corsair h50. Hope I can switch the mounting plate without disassembling

The 212 seems to be doing the job nicely. Check the temp results in the pics.

That is a very nice build you got there.

Had a little trouble with the heat sink and freaked out a bit when I forgot the ATX 12V connector and the system wouldn't power on. Complete build took about 6 hours including software and driver installation in addition to Bench-marking. Still fine tuning settings.

Those "stop my heart" moments let you know you are alive !!

How well does the Hyper 212 EVO do with keeping the CPU cool?

  • 55 months ago

True. Makes you laugh to yourself later when you are enjoying the fruits of your labor.

How much did the ram cost?? Nice build! +1

  • 55 months ago

$100 roughly. but I actuall put it in another build i had so I could make the sale. Have some 8gb of GSkill in now but will reorder the viper next week.

You might want to consider a better cooler for that CPU...

  • 55 months ago

The Evo is actually doing a great job at keeping the cpu chilled. Take a look at the updated pics.

seems the one I got is working good. included temp readings in the build pics.

You NEED a liquid cooler for that CPU.

  • 55 months ago

Seems air cooling is more the adequate so far.

Nice but man a 9590 with a EVO? Do you have all your case fans at 3000rpm lol.

  • 55 months ago
  • 1 point

No actually my fans run at about 1200. 1400 when temps spike. I threw up some pics of the cpu and fan performance.

And too be honest I could have got the 9590 kit that included a liquid cooler but I'm too paranoid to put liquids anywhere near PC internals. Understand that they rarely fail but don't even like taking the chance especially since they void most warranties.

  • 55 months ago

Ok at least put something tha performs better than a liquid cooler like NH-D14/15, Phanteks PCTH-14 or whatever it's called, or a Cryorig R1 Ultimate/Universal.

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/phanteks-cpu-cooler-phtc14pebk get something like this and it matches the build

You're the first person I've seen on here that actually went and got a 9590 instead of a more "traditional" option (cough 4690k cough)..you rebel, you.

All jokes aside, get some proper cooling on that power sucking, massive heat-generating CPU asap.

Check the temp results in the build pics. The 212 seems to be doing the job.

Well guys I must say I'm pleased with the results of testing this rig over the weekend. I have let it run with video running for a entire 8 hr shift. Came home with no issues. Ran a temp log the entire time in amd overdrive. Thermal margin stayed around 60 with an average cpu temp of 32.67 Ive attached some pics to the build showing cpu health info after two hours of playing dying light w/ all settings set to high. Also. Excluded cpu on idle info. Let. Me know your thoughts. Also some no glamor shots inside the case. Thanks

How well would this run battlefield 4 and like I don't know call of duty Black ops 2?

  • 53 months ago
  • 1 point

im playing Crysis 3 and metro last light @ 2k right now and stays at around 40-50fps. Id imagine bf4 and blkops would play fine. Gonna SLI another 970 to kick it up to 60fps @ 2k and 4k.

Okay so the Evo does cool okayish if you have the fans set up the way you do? Because we have have the 9590 and cpu cooler and our motherboards are the same so yeah im actually building a pc right now and im just waiting for the motherboard to arrive lol But the components do work well together right?

Haven't had any problems out of this build so far.

By any chance making a real description and more pics? Like why you built this and reviews on parts? I don't give much love to build posts without effort, so if you do plan on doing more for this, update me when it's does. I'm waiting, and as always, have fun with the build!

Added some more pics with more system performance info and more pics.

the 212 actually seems to be doing the job well. Check the temp readings in pcis.

Not too bad actually. Hit 68 Celsius only after 6 hours of continuous load. Normal says around 55 during game play and idles around 27

Handles it great so far. Have literally games for 6hrs straight on it . Temp were only in the high 40s low 50s
