I keep on hearing about how over powered he is. Is he cosmic level? I don't regularly read Flash comics, so an someone fill me in?

Basically no one can hit him, he can steal peoples speed leaving them statues, and then go infinite mass punch to 1 shot everybody.

The only people who can beat him are Planet Busters.

He's overpowered, yes, but he isn't unbeatable.

In some instances his being overpowered has nearly lead to his destruction. If the flash runs too fast they can actually enter into the Speed Force, which is where all of the speedsters draw their power from, and basically turn into pure energy. It was originally thought of as the final resting place for speedsters (a sort of afterlife), however it seems like ever since Wally West managed to come back from it, suddenly every other character is capable...

I think he is a little overpowered recently. and by a little i mean it is just ridiculous.

Considering the fact that Flash can run in space perhaps planet busters aren't enough. Perhaps. He had the Spectre hiding from him.
