AMD FX-9590 hits retail at massive discount

The Tech Report noticed that AMD's flagship FX-9590 processor is now retailing at a massive discount. This 220W 5GHz Turbo chip was originally intended for preassembled systems but popped up in June for $920 at Newegg. It seems there's still some inventory to clear out as the processor can now be bought for $350 as stand-alone chip, or for $390 if you want the full retail kit (which includes an All-in-One watercooling solution).

Despite the massive price cut, the FX-9590 still costs $50 more than the faster Core i7-4770K.
So, what about now? Funny story. The FX-9590 is down to $350 at Newegg. That's for the bare chip, but there's also a full retail kit for $390. The kit comes with an all-in-one water cooler, so it's a pretty good deal, relatively speaking.

The slightly slower FX-9370 has also made its way into a retail package. That chip peaks at 4.7GHz but has the same 220W TDP as the FX-9590. You can grab it with what appears to be an identical liquid cooler for $290. AMD's previous top-of-the-line CPU, the FX-8350, still sells for $200.
