I want to squeeze more fps to get to 60 on cod wz, but I don't know if it's okay to oc according to the game and not uigine heaven as I get crashes on low ocs like +30 MHz on it. On the other hand, while running cod, I went over +60 MHz oc without problems.

Up to you, any overclock can cause damage to the card, you are gambling reliability for the extra speed. If that is worth it is up to you. The game is not stressing things as much as a benchmark test usually so that is why it's stable.
