If I want to overclock my graphics card and my cpu what kind of cooler should I get? and How much should I overclock it. Also is my fan good enough already?

also, should I get hd radeon 7950 flex 3gb sapphire or should I get a different version of this card?

Like should I change to a gigabyte version of this? Link:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Split your ram up into two modules to take advantage of dual channel architecture. Something like one of these kits would work well

Your CPU cooler is fine - using only two ram banks, clearance for the Hyper 212 shouldn't be an issue
That's all I got

Taking that possibility into consideration, look at ones with lower (or no) heatsinks. Even with mid sized heatsinks like the G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... clearance shouldn't be a concern
