  1. Yes its fine to overclock on that motherboard you can easily overclock upto @4.4Ghz But you need a CPU cooler for that to keep the CPU temp Down
    i myself has i5 4670K on Asus Maximus Ranger VII Board and i am running it at 4.4Ghz from last 2 years

    Yes you can overclock it upto even for 4.8Ghz with hit and trial and yes that cooler will be enofgh to cool it depends on your system airflow and ambient temp
    just make sure you stays lower then 75-80"c to be on the safe side and life of your CPU:)
