Woah, no, wait. You cannot overclock using a B-series motherboards. Only H-series and Z-series support overclocking. If you want to barely overclock it, an H-series will do. If you expect to drag a loooot more horsepower out of your CPU, you're going to want a Z-series motherboard. (And there's different tiers of motherboards, even within specific series)

Also, the cooler is alright for low overclocks. I've never had anything from ARCTIC except for their cooling paste years ago, which I wasn't exactly impressed with, but I'm sure you're going to want to upgrade it a bit if you plan to OC in ludicrous terms.

Would MSI Z370-A PRO or MSI Z390-A PRO work then? And do you have any cpu cooler recommendations that is not too pricey?
