Along with the new 8370 and 8370 AMD included an FX-9590 and FX-9370w/water. Both the FX-9590 and FX-9370 are available with the 120mm water cooling kit. Getting the CPU bundled with the water cooling bumps the price up slightly by $63 for the 9370 and $64 for the 9590. The water cooling is an off the shelf Cooler Master Seidon 120M, I had the chance to check out the 240mm model of this last year if you are interested in seeing how it performed.

While the outside of the box is covered in AMD FX art, the inside really isn’t any different than a standard Seidon water cooling kit, with the exception of the AMD CPU box tucked into the corner.

You get two 120mm fans for a push pull configuration, all of the needed brackets, and then the single 120mm radiator closed loop system.

With this being a bundled kit, they only included the AMD brackets, no surprises there!

Because the FX-9370 came in its retail packaging it also came with its documentation and a nice AMD FX case sticker as well.

There isn’t much to be said about the CPUs as well. No socket changes mean the only thing that sets each CPU apart is the name etched into the top. We still have the pins built into the CPU rather than the motherboard and the same head spreader as on all AMD CPUs over the past few years.

AMD fans can rejoice, there are finally new options from their FX line of CPUs. The question is how do they perform? Check out the review to find out!
