    So, nothing news at AMD, maybe FX Vishera is the last one enthusiast CPU:confused:. Unfortunatelly:(. So for glory I must change few components. My old work PC was Visheras, new is Vishera too. But..

    Old one:
    FX-8350 1229PGN, great one, 5700+ validation with 20 C ambients, 5 GHz stable for 30 minutes
    Corsair H100, very loud pump after almost 3 years :)
    Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z 990FX
    Asus HD6870 DirectCu TOP
    2x 4GB GSkill TridentX 2400 MHz cl10
    Many HHD+1x SSD HyperX 3K 240 GB

    So, I wanted clean CPU and after few months installing bought new cooler and GPU. New components for upgrade were Saphire R9-270X Toxic, yes, I have Asus version too but Asus I need for benchmarking and writing the reviews.
    Next component is Swiftech H220 allinone liquid cooling. I bought two Corsair fans into the case. And I was thinking some time for CPU...Ok, I wanna try FX-9590 in my daily setup :). Good one, not the best. 1.4 V and 4700 MHz seems not bad for me.

    With new settings, thanks to GPU mainly, the score is double almost.
