Which Cooler is best for my MINI ITX Build? Do I overclock?

http://pcpartpicker.com/list/hZYdr7 This is what I have chosen so far. I have already purchased the CPU and PSU. Do I get a motherboard that supports overclocking?

I'd get a Scythe BIG Shuriken 2 Rev. B or a 120mm/140mm AIO water cooler with that case.

You should get a Z170 MOBO.

There are some MOBOs that ain't Z170-chipset, which still allow you to overclock your CPU with an older BIOS, but getting a Z170 MOBO is the easy way (but also costs more).

And some Z170 MOBOs can overclock non-k CPUs with the correct BIOS and RAM
