All boards do better with downward flowing heatsinks, but they end up limiting your CPU cooling capacity. Look for a tower that will allow you to put the fan almost on the MB. This will give you enough air circulation near the motherboard on higher end boards. NH-D15/D14 allow for this. Not sure of others allowing for that type of setup.
Maybe then to buy GIGABYTE GA-990FX-Gaming?
Did you mean to put one more vent, like 80 mm vent near VRM-s on MBO or I can leave without setup like that and just put Noctua NH-D15/14 on CPU and that's it?
I don't want to put extra 800 mm vent on new MBO if don't needed.
I really want 990fx or x chipset but I don't know what is ok MBO for this Vishera.
What MBO in combination with Noctua NH-D15/14 will be stable and "cold":
Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0
Asus sabertooth 990fx r2.0
Gigabyte GA-990X-Gaming SLI, sAM3+
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 R5, sAM3+ - maybe this one
I can't wait with shoppping because I can have this trash ASRock anymore, I can't play anything and I must buy CPU cooler and MBO in one shopping (tomorrow). All thi is very unstable right now, that's why I can't wait and I need to buy new MBO and new cooler. This four MBO what I mentioned I can buy (for that I have money) and I want 990, now I just need advice what MBO of that four is ok for 8320. I don't bother with high clocks of CPU, just want to have stable OS without throtlinng and overheating....just need info what MBO of this four will be "best" ...."cold", stable, no overheating....
About CPU cooler, did I need top down cooler or I can buy Noctua NH-D15 or D-16? If top down is better, I will buy top down but ofc NH-D15 is nice cooler and if is ok for new MBO and if my rig will be stable and "cold" with NH-D15, I will buy NH-D15...but if I need again that top down like on ASRock, I will buy some Noctua or Scythe top down.
