1) It'll work fine.
2) Nop, unless you have an awesome set of headphones or speakers.
3) The stock cooler will work fine for a mild oc. Over 3ghz is possible while still keeping temps in an acceptable range.

I would get this psu instead, better quality.

A very solid build, indeed.

Whether you're overclocking or not, aftermarket cpu coolers are generally quieter than the stock ones. If you shop at newegg, maybe look at scythe coolers.
