How about ths i5



Intel Core i5-4460
You don't need an i5 for HTPC, it'd be a waste. Get Pentium G3258 or i3. Since you want to overclock than go with a cheap Z97 board like, Z97 PC Mate. CM Hyper 212 is good enough to OC with those chips.
Also, you could go for FX-8320 if you really want to OC and play around. It's same price as any decent i3.
