I wouldnt overclock too much because it will be pushing your psu to its limits.

Its never a good idea to overclock the cpu on stock cooling but there are some great inexpensive air coolers available if your interested, your psu is on the low side for overclocking i just put your specs through a psu calculator and i reckon if you aim for 1.4v or under on the overclock your psu should handle it, i really do recommend testing the temperatures you have now on stock before you overclock and it is definitely best to get a new cooler
