CPU and RAM Support help

I have found a HCL for ASRock FM2A55M-VG3+ but don't see the AMD A6-5400K CPU or G-Skill RIPJaw RAM listed on the support list
RAM:

CPU:

    ok thanks another question do you know what I could OC that CPU to and still be stable? it says turbo is 3.8 but I assume it can be overclocked higher than that
  3. That depends on ventilation, air flow, dust level, ambient room temperature, thermal paste application, the material of your case, etc. I cannot give you an accurate estimate without knowing your maximum temps under load with Prime95.

    don't have it together yet so I cant say what it will run at lol my house stays at about 65 Fahrenheit I have an 80mm exhaust fan and I will be using the Corsair CX500 power supply which has a 120mm fan. I have room in the front for another 80mm fan but was told that that could cause air flow problems . and I plan on pulling it out to dust atleast 1-2 times a month just to be safe
  5. I don't see any possible scenario in which adding another fan could cause problems with airflow. Add that second fan, because I don't think you'll get good temperatures on stock with only one 80mm fan.

    I should add that I plan on adding a HDD cooler that will actually blow cold air into the case (I might have to make one since I want it to mount in the 3.5" slot

    this is the case I plan on using I have the DVD drive and rear fan already I bought the PSU today
  7. Yeah you still need the other fan.

    ok so in total I will have 6 fans. 1xCPU fan 1x120mm PSU fan 2x80mm fans 2x40mm fans (HDD cooler) I might go bigger with the HDD cooler fans
  9. The PSU fan doesn't do much, the CPU cooler is not a case fan, and 2 40mm fans will have half the airflow of one 80mm fan. You won't have a ton of airflow.
