I only have the cpu cooler that came with the cpu itself. And I'm planning on buying a new one, but for the moment, is it still possible to overclock. And if so, how much, and what is a good temperature?

Best solution

I would not overclock with stock cooler, it will get quite hot and may shorten lifetime.

When you get your CPU cooler, which I'll 100% suggest a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO as it is the best one for the price ($35), I would OC it to 4.5-4.6Ghz.

Good temps are below 65 degrees, though it varies

Hope this helps you.

that's great, I would only OC until you get that then just as the stock cooler is rubbish at keeping down temps.

Hope this helps, and good luck!
