X-mas upgrade, advice and reconmendations wanted please

This is my current build/set up http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/MAOwarrior/saved/yf7MnQ This x-mas im looking to upgrade my CPU as my current CPU just isnt up to scratch compared to what my GTX760 can handle, Its definitly being 'bottle necked'/held back. I have around £320 and am after performance rather than efficency or saving money. The current upgrades im thinking of are http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/MAOwarrior/saved/ttBFf7 The problem i have is that the motherboard needs a bios update due to the CPU being a refresh but i only have my old Amd CPU so thats not possible, is there a way to get around this? if not whats my other best option. Also whats a fairly cheap CPU cooler? ive got a hyper evo121 but with an OC i7 i dont think its going to cut it.
Cheers
