The thing with overclocking is that every system is different. Yours may be able to overclock 40%, but it could just as easily crash after 5%.

You need to familiarize yourself with the BIOS on your computer, figure out what each and every setting does, and find out which ones you need to change to overclock.
OCing your GPU is actually a bit easier and I even wrote a tutorial on it;
Graphics Card - Overclock

Since there are many questions on it, I might write a generic overclocking tutorial, but that would take a while. In the meantime, do what I suggested above before even THINKING about trying to OC. The last thing you want to do is melt your CPU.

Given your unfamiliarity with overclocking, I'd recommend you NOT do this.
And, considering the low specs of your system, I think you should simply buy a bigger, better machine.

Windows 10 Pro. EFI boot partition, full EFI boot

You can search yourself. There is Core Temp, which also has a windows 7 gadget and CPUID Hardware Monitor.

For gpu there is GPU-Z.

Your MB manufacturer may have some utilities.
