Unlike the FX-9590, the FX-9370 is the middle person between the FX-9590 and the FX-8350.

In goldfries.com’s controlled temperature environment, the processor idles at 36c and peaked at 62c on load even with the CM Seidon 120M. The FX-8350 only registered 56c on load.
The FX-9370 costs about RM 930, a lot cheaper than the FX-9590 that retails at RM 1260 and it’s still a much better choice of processor than the FX-9590.
Alternatively there’s the FX-8350 that retails for around RM 700 that performs very closely to the FX-9370 and with a little overclocking, could do the same or better, depending on how far you push it.
I think the FX-9370 is a decent product but not enough to have the RECOMMENDED badge on it. If only it costs a little less and drains power not more than the FX-8350, then it’ll be a winner.
