Which would give me a better performance boost in most gaming situations?
The cooling upgrade of course would lead to a little bit more GPU overclocking.

I also see the A10 as going backwards. I would stick with what you have and I would suggest overclocking as well as your CPU-NB (this is the IMC not to be confused with north bridge) as high as you can. I am personally holding out to see what Steamroller FX will have to offer and we should see it by the end of the year. I also run a 570 on my 970 Black on a motherboard that's going on 6 years old which runs great.

I have had my 570 for a couple years now. Before i put it in my custom loop, I noticed it running very hot over time and it got to the point where mine was idling at 50c on the idle clocks and on stock fan profiles it would reach as high as 95c and when I set my fan to 100% while gaming, it would top out at around 86c. I switched cases last summer and I noticed that it ran hotter in the new case. When I was preparing to put it underwater, I noticed that the fins on the intake of the vapor chamber near the fan, was almost completely caked with dust to the point it was restricting air flow. My old case was to blame for this which was not dust filtered and I like to leave the windows open year round. My new case is now dust filtered.

Will it really make a large difference (talking more than 1 or 2 fps) to have the 8320 vs the 6300?
Not that I doubt you just I don't know that 8 cores vs 6 cores will make a huge difference on gaming when a lot of games are still being optimized to run on 4 cores.

yes and the difference in price is minimal...
(really 3 and 4 cores but AMD passes it off as modules with dual cores.... long story..)

I would stay away from the 4100 series FX and these have been proven to be worse then Deneb when it comes to gaming and single threaded performance.

Over $60 when you factor in tax and different available bundle from microcenter is hardly minimal, haha. I'll look in to it.
Thank you again everyone for all your help.

(asking out of curiosity)

I have tried but anytime I went over something like a 100mhz bump it ended up in a BSOD, even with small voltage bumps.
