Each cpu is different, can't tell what yours can do. If you have the stock cpu fan, get an upgrade (I like Zalman) before trying to OC. There are numerous how to's on the net, read several before you start to avoid problems.

There is a lot of stuff on the net about overclocking. I also agree leave it alone until you get a better Fan/Heatsink. Most people who overclock use watercooling.
