Should be able to, but it depends on your BIOS. Go into your BIOS and take a peek around to see if you have the options available to overclock it. Usually you just push DEL on boot to go into your bios, but it's different for each motherboard.

1st off, how do you know? And if he doesn't, he might just want to know if he can before he purchases it.

It's not dangerous. But prepare your rig for an overclock before you actually overclock, I.E. Efficient cooling, and then understand the BIOS and what the features do. It's much like modding a car to go faster. You don't just slap a turbo onto your motor or re-program the ECU without preping and an understanding of what your doing.

Overclocking, for some, seems too good to be true, but it is very possible (and sometimes fun) to do. However, overclocking can have its consequences. When done improperly, damage may result in your system, and in the worst case, a complete system failure.
