That's a firestarter right there, I wouldn't recommend overclocking anything on that, probably not even pushing the full wattage.

If you really do want to overclock, get a better budget PSU like the Corsair CX 550M (2017 units, gray "CX" not green), or the Antec Neo Eco NE550M and only then think about overclocking.

Use MSI Afterburner.

Its not even worth to OC it as it does not use Power Pin, Pretty much you are just going to stay at 75W maximum all the time.. Just buy cheapest 1650 like Asus.
