It should be enough... I don't have BFC OC'd edition. But I got myself a eVGA. Considering your not running anything too lifethreatening to your watt/12V rail. I think it will be enough...

XFX or EVGA, because they have lifetime warranty and much more.

no, unfortunately, the Zalman won't fit...

you'll need a HS03 from Thermalright or something similar...
