What for are you going with a liquid cooling setup.? Also, DDR3 1333 MHz memory speed will become a limiting factor while attempting high CPU overclocks.. For the motherboard, i'll recommend a newer chipset based board such as the MSI 870A-G54..

I'm confused as to what you mean about the liquid cooling, also is ddr3 1600 better?

Higher RAM speed gives more headroom for overclocking.. On that note, 1600 MHz memory modules are going to be better compared to 1333 MHz modules.. You could go as high as 2000 MHz but you'll get limited by your board..
