Welcome to the forums.
I say a little over stock with that cooler , unless it´s winter.
imo the Artic freezer´s a bit small for a serious OC, you should be looking for a big chunk of metal hanging off that thing , 4 x 8mm heatpipes HDT at least, maybe with a push pull 120mm tower if you want to push it. That or liquid.
Just curious, why the 740 with that setup.

Was the best deal I could find at the time of ordering, and thought about doing liquid cooling or a different cooler when I got into serious overclocking. Is that not a good graphics card?

I'm more worried about the power supply than the video card.

It depends what games you play and what resolution your screen is at., and your budget.

When you get some time fill in your specs

According to all the psu calculators, it says I'll be fine.
I've used the rig builder, its set up as a proposed rig currently, until I get it set up

It isn't the wattage that is the problem. It is that it seems to be an off brand psu.

He means that a bad PSU can "literally" be a bomb waiting to happen. Or just an EMP. Both are possible.
