If you are going to OC the CPU to a constant 5GHz please do insure that you have all the EPS 12volt connectors fitted. That CPU loves voltage.
And as has been said good cooling is a must for that little heat beast.

I may be construed as being pedantic but, I carefully checked and polished the back of my CPU (lapped) to get rid of what I considered a poor grind.
I then applied a tiny bit of arctic silver, seated the CPU and then checked it. At first it wasn't enough, so I cleaned up and reapplied with just a little more. checked again and found that amount was just enough to spread across evenly, I used the pea method and taking care not to tighten too much.
I agree the FX-9590 is a beast, but it can be tamed.

Has anyone overclocked a 9590 cpu? They run 4.7ghz and 5ghz turbo but i'm wanting to jump mine to 5ghz constant, or slightly higher. Just wondering if anyone has got good results and could share their settings?
