    Matching a CPU to MOBO cooling solution.

    I will try to keep this short,

    I have an AMD FX-9590 and am going to pair it with a 990FXA-UD7 Board. I have a Noctua NH-D15 on-hand. Will this suffice for cooling? I cannot find a definitive TDP for this HSF, though it is a monster at cooling my 8350 which is highly OC'd and keeps very low temps, I do know that the 9590's are heat monsters. Noctua has it listed under supported CPU's but this doesn't necessarily mean much. I find TDP ratings all over ranging from 140 to 220. I do realize that these CPU's can be a handful but I finally want to give it a shot and found a board for it as the lower end boards I've been using sure wouldn't have done it any justice.

    Any suggestions?

    Ok, It seems I have almost everything on-hand then. I just need a suitable tower for it as the NH-D15 stands 165cm with fans.
