First AMD Overclocking Build Idea

I was looking at the deals on Newegg today and decided I was interested in an AMD build with a focus on perfecting Overclocking before attempting it on my rig.

This is partially for fun, but also to learn more about AMD and Overclocking.

Suggestions are welcome.

Your not going to do much overclocking without a upgraded cooler. Their no reason to spend money on most of the parts you have listed to learn how to overclock the net has a ton of information.
