Well it's a good source of info, but if you want any help or links to helpful guides, you need to first list your system specs. CPU, Mobo, GPU, PSU, RAM, and whether you have an aftermarket cooler or not.

If you're considering overclocking, the best thing to do is search for guides on how to OC your CPU and also guides on OCing with your mobo. Read several of these to get an idea what you need to do. Just remember, small steps and lots of testing for stability.

Looks good. I can't really comment on those cooling options, I just use air which works fine. As for CPU, i5 or 955 well there's no real "noob" CPU not sure what that would even imply. The i5 is better but for gaming you probably won't see much difference and the 955 should be a little cheaper.
