I've already over clocked a PC from 3.2ghz to roughly 4Ghz, the CPU runs at roughly 33C. Therefore can I atleast push the CPU to 4.2 ghz also considering if I have; I assume plenty of wattage coming into the computer, if that is relevant to begin with ?

It has little to do with wattage coming into your pc, it has to do with voltage running threw the cpu. Are you stress resting it on the oc, I find that temp to be very low if you are. Also give us some system info if you want advice.
