Gratz!!!!
Crucial Balistics are very good memory. Some Crucial Balistics 1600 can OC to 1866+.
Hyper 212 is an ok cooler and it is still way better than a stock one.

Oh my word this mobo is a world of difference...I had batman arkham asylum on high / medium no aa and it would hover at 45 fps which is fine and all, but I didn't think my videocard was so low end. Got my Sabertooth rockin (minus one fan header seems to be out frown.gif but I'm not going to rip it all apart for that I don't think lol) and the Hyper 212 overclocked my cpu to 3.5ghz now and batman sits at 60fps (vsync) booya lol.

Now take your CPU to 4.0ghz.

Yes it should handle it. The cpu cooler is good for a Phenom II x6 @ 4.0ghz and the mobo is one of the best.
For the ram speed is that what the bios says or CPU-Z says?
