    The supported sockets for the ACFZ13 fan are

    AM2, AM2+, , (AM3+ will support your mobo)
    LGA775, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366, FM1, FM2, LGA1150, FM2+

    yes it will fit on to the mobo
    check PcPartpicker for future build help since they will tell you if anything is not compatible.

    Well I used that and I added my case and graphics card (NZXT Source 210[Black],MSI n750Ti 2GB Twin Frozr). The graphics card will not fit because the case will only fit 230mm but the card is 249. Do you think you can find a cheap decent looking case to fit my graphics card? Thanks in advance.

    Hey thank you but I already found one. Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03. Im planning on adding 4 fans to this which already has 2 fans.
  5. the chassi comes with the intake fan at the front and and exaust fan at the rear, as per normal.

    make sure you have the same amount of intake and exaust fans (more exaust fans is recommended since you want the warm air moving out quickly.

    key rule to remember is to have the intake fans at the front and bottom, whilst you want your exaust fans at the back and top.
    having to more fans is not the solution, it's more about a good air flow.

    Please explain which is facing inward and outward and how to tell.
  7. Most standard case fans can be used as either way.
    The only difference is in orientation.
    most good fans have arrows on the side of the case to show rotation
    and which way the fan blows...just find the arrows and you will know which way to face the fans. Keep in mind you should get two equal fans...that is, they spin at the same rate for the best effect
