First Build - Overclocking help!

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/9rH3jX - This is my build. I was wondering if it was possible for me to overclock the fx 6300 to 4ghz with the stock cooler and not have any problems. I also plan on overclocking GPU. Will the PSU be enough for that?

I don't think the psu will be enough for overclocking both, you might want to bump it up to a 700w psu since you're cutting it close as is.

If you're going to be doing any overclocking at all, I'd recommend something that isn't the stock cooler. One that's good for the price and cheap is the hyper 212 evo, but I'm not sure if it'll fit on that mobo/cpu.

Aye, that's cutting it quite close
