Question  loud cpu fan by ian

Ive recently bought this setup. It's fantastic apart from 1 problem.

The cpu fan is so damn loud all the time. Im used to system fans running loud initially while systems boot up but this thing sounds like its permenantly running flat out. Ive changed the fan settings using msi afterburner but that has made no difference.

A little help here please guys as its driving me nuts.

Answer by andrewn on Tuesday, February 22, 2011
This can be an issue with overclocking, basically. Generally high overclocks and quiet systems are mutually exclusive. If you lose or reduce the overclock the fan should be able to run at a lower speed resulting in less noise. It might be worth posting on our forums at in the OverClocking, Modding & Benchmarking section, the helpful people there might have more specific advice which could allow you to balance your overclock with your desire for a bit of peace and quiet :).

Question  Sata3 by Christo


Do you stock a SATA3 PCI-e card that will work with this motherboard. I like the ASUS card, with 2xSATA3 and 2xUSB3 but not sure if it will work.

Many thanks.

Answer by philm on Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Question  Gtx 560TI by Jack

Will a gtx 560ti be a good idea with this bundle or will it bottleneck.

Answer by andrewn on Sunday, February 20, 2011
Although it depends on the game to some extent, I doubt very much that the CPU would be a bottleneck if you were to combine this system with a 560.
