Asus Lists 990FX Motherboards with FX-9000 CPU Support

When the FX-9000 series of CPUs from AMD was released, they were released to OEMs only. The reason for this was because the CPUs had such high TDPs, so various manufacturers still had to test the units in their motherboards to confirm support. After all of that, the CPU also became available through retail channels and can be purchased separately.

Asus announced its Crosshair V Formula-Z, Sabertooth 990 FX R2.0, and M5A99FX Pro R2.0 motherboards support the FX-9000 series CPUs. A BIOS update won’t even be required, though the motherboards do all need to be of the second revision.

If you’re uncertain though, always be sure to look up CPU support on the manufacturer’s website for your particular motherboard. Not only this, but if you do intend on using an FX-9000 series CPU, AMD also recommends the use of water cooling as well as a minimum of a 1200 W power supply.
