Should I overclock the CPU? Im looking for more performance on Rust(game) as it is a CPU game, I have an RTX2060 paired with it on a B660M motherboard

I currently have a stock cooler because I couldn’t get my cooler master air flower radiator cooler on my new motherboard. What cooler should I get if I was to overclock? And yes, this will be my first time properly overclock if I did overclock

lastly, I have an i5-12600k paired with an RTX2060 and I was wondering if I would get a performance boost if I upgraded to an RTX2080Ti or rx 6800 xt/rx 6900 xt

i mainly play rust which is a CPU cantered game, doesn’t really rely on GPU that much but I know others like MW2 would require a better gpu

You can't overclock your CPU while on that chipset/motherboard.

Please list them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:
Monitor:
include the age of the PSU apart from it's make and model. Airflow and fan orientation in your chassis?
