I intend to keep this computer for a while and don't want to it brake for a good amount of time. Not really sure if it's worth it, with the risks and everything. Although, having a high refresh rate monitor I would be happy to squeeze any more performance out of I can. Even if it was worth it I would be unsure how to go about doing it. Any advice appreciated.

My rig:
CPU: Ryzen 3600
GPU: 1660 ti
MOBO: MPG x570 GAMING PLUS
RAM: 16gb 3200mhz vengeance LPX

Overclocking your hardware properly with voltage and max temp well within safe boundaries will not decrease the longevity of your hardware in a significant manner.

A Ryzen 5 3600 probably cannot be overclocked far enough to be worthwhile.
Tweaking DRAM frequency and timings when using Ryzen 3000 can increase performance by a significant margin.
You can overclock your 1660ti. This will be worthwhile, with how much depending on how far your particular model can be pushed.
