Just try going up slowly and as long as your temps dont get worse you should be ok

Maybe not 3.2, but possibly. Just try it and watch the temperatures. Overclocking with the stock cooler is not advised because it is awful at cooling so be careful and do not let temperatures go above 60.

Use HWMonitor to monitor your temperatures during stress testing. (HWMonitor Site)

I'd say more like 65-70C is a safe max temp, but whatever your comfortable with.
