Although experimenting is never a bad thing, I would thing the best set up would be:

Compression/Sustain >> Overdrive/Distortion >> Noise Supressor

More to the point, if you put a compression pedal after the overdrive, you would increase unwanted noise. Even though you have noise suppression, you don't want to start with that issue if you don't have too.
