Overclocking With 121 EVO & AMD Ryzer

I'm pretty new to this, and this computer build is my first. I have a Coolermaster Hyper 121 EVO, and an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 6-core. I'm pretty sure that, according to another post on here, the 121 EVO would work if I try overclocking. But would that still be a wise idea with the stock thermal paste that comes with the Coolermaster as well? I'm not entirely sure how good the thermal paste is, but I'm guessing it's probably better than the pre-applied one that came with the CPU.

If necessary, the PSU is a Seasonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V.

    It's 212, yes it will work. It is better than Wraith Spire and comparable to Wraith Max, all of them are made by Coolermaster anyway. Yes, the CM paste works fine. The pre applied paste on the CPU is Coolermaster too. They are all the same.

    Approx performance:
    Wraith stealth = Coolermaster TX 3
    Wraith Spire = Coolermaster T4
    Wraith Max = hyper 212
