Try googling i5 760 OC guide and see what results you come up with. I've never OC-ed an i5 760 so I cant help you on that one. But it's a good CPU and can be overclocked definitely. Depending on what voltages you need and what clock youre aiming for, you may need a better cooler than the stock fan.

Speeds up your computer by increasing the operating frequency of whichever component you are overclocking . Souping up your computer.

Short answer no. Stock cooler is junk. Might be able to speed it up a little bit on stock cooler but not enough to be worth the time and effort. Spend $30 on a competent air cooler and you're in business.
