Very motherboard dependant. Need to see if it let's you adjust the FSB in steps (smaller, the better IMO) and if the vCore is adjustable (again, smaller the better...steps that is).
First and foremost, do some research as to your actual branded items you have in there and their model names. SiSoft Sandra gives you a good amount of info, and CPUz is another info tool that could be of some use (tells you the basic CPU info where SiSoft is more telling of the system as a whole)
Then, get a good cooler that would fit your application (motherboard/CPU dependant. Check the compatibility section of the HeatSink manufacture's site). Good brands to start looking at are Thermalright, Coolermaster, Zalman, and Swiftech.
Memory "timmings" will come into play on the more advanced side, but for now I'd just start the research process of what this means.
The Cely is a very good CPU to overclock, and probably the best thing to start off with. Nice platform!
