My first question: I have a sapphire r9 290 4g d5. Is sapphire the name of the group, and the gpu is reffered to as "r9 290", or is the sapphire part important?

 

Second One:

I have the stock cooler with a mini tower and 2 SP120 fans at the front and back. I also don't trust myself to test overclocking, in case I break something. My final question is can I with my current system?

Intel i54590 CPU

8gb hyperx fury 1866mhz ram (2x4 if it matters)

R9 290

Asus b85m-g r2.0 motherboard

In conclusion of the second question, can I overclock? and how much? (using msi afterburner)
