You sure can. I recommend getting an after market cooler for the processor if you do.

I'm using the same cooler and have been able to overlcock my processor beautifully. Between the cooler and the motherboard, yes, you'll have a lot of room for overlcoking. Good luck.

I had difficulties when I tried to overclock my FX-8370. I'm no expert but I would recommend something better.

Actually, This board supports up to 64GBs of RAM. I read a long thing about it when I bought it. And when the board came out, 16GB sticks were not out yet/very high priced. So in turn they just said it could only hold 32GB.

You can virtually use any video card you want with full performance as long as ram and CPU are good variants for it. Only thing you can't do with this board is SLI. But you can CAN crossfire though.
