Quick answer yes, mobo and CPU can be OC'd if PSU is up to the task.
Always upgrade the stock air cooler. This is a given.
Don't be surprised if you end up replacing or adding a few case fans somewhere early into the adventure as you'll need added air flow through the case.
Case placement under a desk or enclosed doesn't work well with OCing so keep this in mind.
Monitor voltages and temperatures with HWInfo64 (free) on an ASUS.
