Some M5a97's are better than others eg the evo pro is better than the r2.0 or le r2.0. The le r2.0 you definitely need a cooler as it doesn't have a heatsinked vrm Reply to i7Baby m 1 l begnr19 June 3, 2014 2:30:46 AM Wow ..thanks... so without overclock...can i add extra cabinet fans ? will it cut it close if I overclock and add fans ? I have a 2 4GB 1333 mhz on the board..so I m really worried if it completely takes up the power wattage i have.

If you can specify the exact model of the fan then its power consumption can be checked. Reply to EasyLover m 0 l begnr19 June 3, 2014 3:14:51 AM This is the fan model Cooler Master R4-S2S-124K-GP Reply to begnr19 m 0 l EasyLover a b K Overclocking a c 115 à CPUs June 3, 2014 3:20:25 AM Don't use these fans as their CFM is just 44.7. Check the fans with high CFM and low db or dbA level. Reply to EasyLover m 0 l begnr19 June 3, 2014 3:35:48 AM Oh okay....can u suggest any good 120 mm fans? Reply to begnr19 m 0 l EasyLover a b K Overclocking a c 115 à CPUs June 3, 2014 3:47:16 AM Try Corsair AF series fans or Noctua's NF-A14/15 or cooler master sickle flow series fans Reply to EasyLover m 0 l Ask the community Post an answer Related resources SolvedUsing 500 W required GPU with 450 W PSU Forum SolvedWhats the minimum CPU and GPU required to run Battlefield 4 at High or Ultra settings?
