Yes, overclocking does induce damage to the CPU and it's surrounding components like the motherboard and the PSU as well, if you don't know what you're doing. The heat dump from your overclocks, if left unchecked can also cause thermal throttling or worse, degradation of the CPU and the motherboard's VRM.

That being said, you might want to look through this guide courtesy of Gigabyte.

My rig can support though with the components shown, as long as i dont mess up, i dont intend to see how far my CPU can go but just give it a little boost

Easy small boosts can be done simply even with XTU. Bumping the turbo boost for all cores to 4.6ghz is about a 7percent overclock. You can also offset the vcore by like -.05 to reduce voltage, even more of you go through slowly and test stability. I think just a turbo multiplier to 46 all cores the i5 was only demanding 1.29 volts. Well within safe margins. I cant remember exactly, but you will need to monitor it and temperatures to make sure all stays in safe ranges.
