Aftermarket coolers are much more efficient when it comes to cooling, and keeping the noise down whether you are over clocking or not. An entry level cooler like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo @ $30, would be sufficient for some ambitious overclocks. As for that motherboard question, what is your budget? I have spoiled myself with Asus' ROG line, well-built, awesome VIP customer service, easy RMA's. Perhaps the Asus Crosshairs V Formula @ $220.
Here are a couple links to check out.
