I have the 1700 that came with the wraith cooler. When overclocked even a little, and running things that put my video card at or near 100%, the cpu temp would go above 70 pretty quick and then shut down.

You're going to need a cpu cooler. And if you want to overclock, get one that can keep it below 70°C or it will shut down. So that means a pretty good air fan, or probably any AIO water.
Also, it's been found that by having faster ram with these new AMD's, it really opens up the whole system. Something about the term "fabric",...I didn't read much into why, but have seen benchmarks that show faster ram up to about 3000mhz really does help. And although there's suppose to be new Agesa updates from AMD that will provide better support for different types of ram (like Hynix), for now, the best known sticks are ones using Samsung B-die, which is usually the more expensive stuff. So you can take your chance with that ram working at its rated speed and maybe being able to overlock it, in order to get this added performance I've seen, or you can get some sticks that are Samsung b-die (3200mhz and CL14 is typically whats worked very well so far)

I'm curious what speed the isp say you should be getting?

ya know, if you had bought amd cards you wouldn't have had all these problems.
