Read some overclocking guides. Go to Motherboard manufacturer website and check out the manual and see if it has the necessary bios options for overclocking from said guides.

Chances are you will not get more then 3.5-3.6 overclock on it and without unlocking it a low-end cooler like a TX3 or OCZ Gladiator will be plenty. The stock cooler is good up to 3.4 with some voltage increase, and if you have a REALLY good chip 3.5-3.6.

Gotta read up.

I've personally never had much luck OC'ing on the Nvidia based boards...but some people have. I had a 780G mATX board that would hold a rock solid OC as long as the chip was capable.

I would watch the motherboard temps, simply because its a mATX board and their known for having poor CPU power regulation. That chip won't draw and shouldn't be a problem, but keep an eye on them just in case.
