    Yes, but while it is true that you can change clock speeds and voltages in the BIOS, it really is important to be carefull when changing settings in bios as small mistakes can easily fry your hardware.

    Overclocking the CPU will probably not need much additional cooling as long as you don't change the volts. If you're going to overvolt you may need to increase the speed on your fans.
