Read the overclocking guide. I did my first overclock on that same motherboard so you should be able to do it too

Overclocking with the stock cooler is a bad idea. If you're not careful you could end up with an Core 2 paperweight

If that's too expensive for you then that also means that replacing your processor is also too expensive for you and thus you shouldn't be overclocking at all.

Overclocking will make a highly playable game more playable but it will not make an unplayable game playable.

i mean its too expensive for a fan ... i think my cheapo procesor costed me around 3k and spending 2k more on it will make it a 5k processor and it will still not give me comparable performance as 5k processors ..
is it possible to overclock it to 3ghz on stock cooler
btw. i'm 17 and yeah 2.5k is too expensive for me

It might be possible but it could also destroy your processor.

If you can't afford to replace something, don't overclock it.
