Hi, you can't overclock with that motherboard or cpu, you'll need a bit more £ for that, i don't know if you want to spend much more, the i5-3470 will do the trick with stock speeds.
Club3D is a known brand, you can see a review here -> http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/gpu_displays/club_3d...
The xfx 550w is a seasonic oem psu, it's a quality one, better than most psus at this price range.
If you need the urge to overclock the cpu i recommend going with the FX-6300 build or spending around this.
