As for Ram, You brought very good models but they are not available in the market here
There are Kingston, Elixir, Hynex, Spectek all ddr 667 and Chaintec APOGEE ddr 800
Again regarding the mobo
The 965p-ds3 is a little pricy here, I am thinking about MSI 965p-Neo
I've read its max FSB = 333 mhz without increasing cpu voltage
Is this 333 fsb value can be achieved by e4300 on this board or just the e6*** ?
If it gives me 2.9 ghz on e4300, I'll pick it
Is this cooler good to buy it or it's as the stock cooler?
Well if you go with less expensive RAM i would stick with ddr2-800 if all possible.. That will get rid of any limitations in oc'ing..At least limitations from the ram..
When overclocking Vcore is different for every cpu.. Some need nothing, others need a lot.. I have seen 4300's at 2.8ghz with 1.42 vcore to run stable.. There is no way to really say what vcore you will need to oc..
That cooler looks damn near stock to me.. IDK anything about it.. I would think you could find something better than stock for under $40 .. If $40 is too much for the budget, i would just go stock till you can get a nice cooler.. I don't think that will change too much when you oc.. You will still see a good oc, and maybe could expect an even higher oc when you end up getting an aftermarket cooler.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835207001
thats a good budget cooler.. $20 and better than stock, even better than some more expensive coolers..
That motherboard looks pretty good.. I have looked up some reviews on it and it seems to be as solid as the S3 i suggested.. If its more in your budget you should go for it.. 965P's oc very nice.. And some can even allow for a bsel mod and higher oc's.. MSI is a good choice..
