Been outa the loop since ddr3 was a thing. Building a 2k AMD gaming rig, chose the fx 9590. Getting either air cooled, or closed liquid, depending on whats left over. but assuming i go air cooled, any reason not to go with the good ole 212 evo? Goin with the fx 9590. aint picked anything else yet. Gonna go single gpu, 1tb ssd+hdd, either 32 or 64 gb ram. Low high end amd gpu. Filltered mid case (i smoke)

FX-9590?

WHY?

That is easily in the top 3 worst CPUs foisted on the public this century. Possibly #1.
And it is an 8 year old item.
