Is it ok to overclock an i7-7700k from 4.2 to 4.5GHz without liquid cooling?

I have a intel skylake i7-7700k stock clocked at 4.2GHz and i was wanting to overclock to 4.5GHz but I have a pretty basic cpu cooler (This one).

Can i safely overclock my CPU to my desired frequency with this cooler?

Vielen Dank

    Yes, of course. That is one of the best "basic" coolers. As long as your CPU core load temps remain safe, you can use any cooler. Throttle is around 100C. Obviously you will want to stay well below that for everyday use. Check out CompuTronix page for details.
