Your CPU has an 80w rating at stock clock/voltages and your MB says the socket is rated for 95 watts.

You have some room to grow but not a lot. I would see how far you can OC on stock voltages. (Maybe one Vcore bump)

My mistake. I was looking at an ECS A880GM-M7 not the ECS A880GM-A3.

OC Wattage = TDP x ( OC MHz / Stock MHz) x ( OC Vcore / Stock Vcore )^2

The cooler is nice for the money.

Check your power supply wattage here: (It also incorporates the oc)
