Your motherboard should allow you to overclock it is more likely that your ram is limiting you. Follow a good guide, they will show you how to adjust ram to let the CPU stretch its legs. (there is a guide in the overclocking section)

it depends the quadcore suggested here overclocked can equal the e8500 overclocked performance, so it depends are u gonna do some multitasking as well than the q9950 is recommanded, but if ur just gaming overclock ur cpu , but id invest in a cooler such as a , coolermaster hyper212+ for under 32$ , so u can overclock that chip good and keep it cool :) , dont forget to have one fan in the front and one in the back, intake and one outake :) , and whynot 1 blowing air on the cpu as well :)
