fx-4300, fx-6300 etc are highly overclockable and are relatively cheap as well

Don't go Bulldozer, if your going to go AMD, get something that is Piledriver, like an FX 4300 or FX 6300

I second the FX-6300, technically all the FX processors I know of are overclockable and all K edition Intel processors are overclockable.

Edit: Not the best board for overclocking...

Swap your Mobo
Preferably the M5A97 Motherboard.
FX 4300 is what you want, good choice.
Not entirely sure about the H40.

Otherwise, everything else looks good!

Well my only concern is the board you have is not for overclocking enthusiasts, though I recall hearing the board can achieve somewhere like a 10% overclock.

I'd suggest getting a motherboard with VRM heatsinks and a higher power phase than the current one. I have the M5A78L-M LX PLUS and I can tell you not to overclock, I killed my first one with a hefty overclock of 4 ghz on the Phenom II X4 955.

Edit: I believe the 10% overclock was for your currently selected board, will look around to verify that right now.

Wait are you planning on getting that board? If so that's a great board to overclock on, its also got VRM heatsinks.

Depends, if you get a motherboard from a new batch with the newest bios then you wont need to update it. If not you will need to.

Take this board:

It is cheaper than the one chanelight has posted.

FX-4100 is definetly not worth it, if you want to go for it then reconsider and grab a Phenom II X4 955/965 for cheaper and it will outperform the FX-4100.

If you leaning towards the FX-4100 then grab that 965. The 965 is still a capable processor, this is the black edition variant right?

Nah, the H40 is not worth the price tag. Stick to the Hyper 212, add another fan if you want better performance.

Well that's the standard price on Newegg (Canada) as well so its okay I guess. Though do look around, you may find one cheaper.
