if you're going microATX, then don't try to overclock

in addition, you don't have good ram and it doesn't seem like you have any knowledge of OCing at all (looking at your choice of crappy OCing boards; how would you even know if your zalman will fit into your mATX case?)

mATX boards aren't made for ocing anyways

Why is that? You can overclock anything, it's just the will to do it needs to be there. It's not advisable, unless you are using some sort of phase change cooling system or are mounting that board in a full size case. You cant get good airflow in a small case, which is why you should not OC an mATX.

But dont do it, like everyone is suggesting. At least get a bigger case, and you can start with some basic overclocks on it, very small ones. But if you want good overclocks, you will need a good board, a full ATX one at that.
