Is my system overclock compatible?

So about 3 weeks ago, I got my first PC. I wanted to overclock since my CPU bottlenecks around 14%, which kinda annoys me. I want to overclock but I don't want to risk damaging anything if my computer can't handle a stable OC.

Here's my build for reference:

my CPU bottlenecks around 14%, which kinda annoys me.

that is not how bottlenecking works, bottlenecking all depends on the game and graphical settings. There is not a blanket answer to this and any CPU can bottleneck any GPU under the right circumstances. Bottlenecking is not a absolute thing or a yes or no thing like it is made out to be.

Also it is 100% meaningless to even think about provided you chose your parts right and get what you want. You should chose the CPU for the FPS you want and the GPU(s) for the graphical performance you want. If you are happy with what you get and meet your goals then why worry about something that is not impacting you?

Ah, thanks. I was pretty confused on how bottlenecking worked. So that's my fault for being ignorant. But still, thanks. :)
