What kind of server? I don't think it's a good idea to run a 'room heater' (it's 80W idle, and even 350W in full load) 24/7 if you don't want to hugely bloat your electrical bills.

 

Also, we need to know the details of your existing RAM and CPU cooler brands/photo as to know what we expect to upgrade.

Humor me, as you should do.

 

Daily drivers, below.

I let out a hard "oof" when I saw that 970 chipset. Though the UD3 isn't a terrible board, at least for that era of AMD.

 

Cooler: Noctua. NH-U12. If that's too much money, Hyper 212. If you want something more high end, get a real CPU before you worry about getting a better cooler. Anything (and even arguably the NH-U12 itself) more expensive is wasted on Bulldozer/Excavator era CPUs. And I built a full open loop with dual radiators with lots of case mod that has an FX 8350 and RX 580 (it's a Nitro+, so I feel justified). The cost to benefit just isn't there past a basic 120mm tower cooler.

 

Fans: Gonna stay on the Big Brown... Fan. Definitely fan. No other noun works in that sentence. Noctua NF-A12. There is no better general purpose fan made. They even come in black now, if that's your thing for your... fans. Barring that price tag, you can generally get an EK fan cheap on clearance. Check here: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/clearance/clearance-radiators-fans. Vardars are currently 13.00$ each, and easily do 13.00$ worth of work. The Meltemis and Furies are good too, if you don't mind your PC sounding like it's spinning up for takeoff. But a Noctua fan will last you several builds, so I wouldn't flinch away from the $30+ price on a Noctua fan.

 

Memory: G. Skill Ripjaws. Just search "g. skill ripjaws ddr3" in eBay, and you'll find lots of very affordable options. Generally, you should be able to get 1600/CL9 or better.

That FX-9590 is (hugely) overkill for the task you want to do. Another PC with way more lower power usage would've be nicer for your bills, or even an old laptop could do the job fine.

 

Otherwise, you actually only need the cooler and 8 GB of RAM should've suffice for the job you want to do.

 

To put the context though why I recommend that, I assume you're in the US, and with that running 24/7, you'd pay $10 per month if you're using it as a server.
