Default new pc build freezing issues

Hello new here and justhere got to build my first pc, I got an asus 990xR2.0 Mobo and a Fx9590 CPU, cooled by 4 120mm fans and a single one for the CPU itself, also got 16gb kingstone RAM. Got a beefy PSU 850w crosair as well , win 8.1 gpu r9 290x 4G asus, except the system freezes :/. I ran prime95 and locked up at worker #4, seems CPU freezes at its fourth core? Got it through amazon as an OM and the box was open upon arrival... WTF :/. Got a replacement on its way, but would like to figure out if the screen shot does state that it's the processor.

What is your CPU voltage? I am running an FX-8350, and it gives similar errors when the clock is too high or the Vcore is too low. I don't know the details for your chip in terms of voltage and frequency. My 8350 is at stock 4.0 GHz, and runs happily at 1.32V. On an Asus Crosshair V Formula Z, putting the voltage on Auto yields about 1.35V.

These are just first thoughts. On my FX, failure usually hits cores 7 or 8 first, but different specimens have different weak points.

FX 9590 has a name for being a power hog.
Make sure it gets enough voltage and that the temp stays within reasonable limits - have you measured it?
Are you overclocking? If yes, raising the voltage above stock is probably needed.

Well I'm not looking to over clock my system, i want it as stock as possible.

The voltage is CPU 1.488V according to the Bios Report. I was thinking of exchanging my 990FX for a Formula Crosshair V, yet it also mentions just like the 990FX that : FX-9590(FD9590FHW8KHK, 4.7GHz, 8C, L3:8M, 220W,rev.C0,AM3+) Due to the high TDP, please be noted there are limitations while using this CPU(i.e. special thermal required..).
So I'm very confused :/. The screenshots attached has the volt info. not sure which one to give.

The temperatures are quite different on the two posts. I suspect one is idle and the other isn't. CPUs often lower their voltage when idle.

The Bios ones is after it freezes i turn it on to ssee the temp it registers at the moment, the in OS one is idle nothing strenuous happening.
So I figured that it must be a bad proccesor, because I played a very simple game "The deer God" Is an UnityEngine game, and it ran without any lockups or studdering, so it isn't the GPU or RAM. Yet i start MetalGearSolid 5 the newest one and it locks up after loading the game :/ so im thinking that when it tries to take avantage of the CPU multicore feature it locks up. I got a replacement on its way, so lets see how it will hold. I was thinking of switching my mobo to a Crosshair V Formula-Z < Is what i've been told should be a better Mobo, and a Dual Fan Cooling for the CPU too.

I don't really need a watercooling system since i wont be overclocking anything.

any of this options sounds good?

I think I probably misquoted the Auto voltage on my board. It is probably closer to what you report. I say this because 1.5 V is a level I saw in a Republic of Gamers (Asus ROG) article, which was aiming to overclock from 4 GHz to 4.8 GHz on an 8350.

It has been difficult to come up with solid numbers for Vcore on the 8350. The 9590 may be a similar case. If you can run it at less than 1.5 V it would help a lot with your thermals. I have a Corsair H100i cooler, and it can't keep the temps at acceptable levels with much of an OC. At 1.5V it would be pretty hot even at stock clocks.

EDIT: The Sabertooth boards are also good. I had one briefly, but traded it back in at Microcenter for the Crosshair. The main reason for that was the spacing of PCIe x16 slots was not optimal for running more than one GPU

So keep the sabertooth? And ill report after I replace the cpu with another 9590 :3

So update, sadly with the new replacement CPU it still froze :/, now i think its the motherboard.
Shouldn't all this function without any bios settings right? all out of the box? I don't care about overclocking but geee, this is ridiculous. If not then i'll have to Bend over and get a FX-8350

Well i've given up. I'll use my sabertooth with a fx8350
:/ fiddled with the bios and nothing came of it. saaad. Thank you guys!

It may also be the power supply.
