The difference in your native and your OC speed will not be enough in my opinion to justify the heat issues you will encounter. .20 to .40 ghz faster is in reality maybe a second at best faster. You would be much better to purchase a faster CPU at 2.2 or 2.4GHZ and running it at native speed.
What is the reason for wanting to OC?

The risks are not just to the CPU either - pretty much the whole computer. This is why it is critical you monitor temperatures for CPU and System (usually the chipset) if you overclock, even a little. And it is critical to keep the interior clean of heat trapping dust.
Note it is typically the motherboard makers, review sites, and computer enthusiasts who make a big deal about overclocking. Not the CPU makers - even among most gamers. In fact, if you check Intel and AMD warranties, they both say using abnormal voltages - that is, operating voltages that are not in the published data sheet for that CPU violates the terms of the CPU warranty. This is similar to Chevrolet won't replace your new Corvette engine if you blew it up drag racing at the track.
Having said all that, if the interior is clean, you have lots of front-to-back air flow through the case, your PSU has plenty of headroom, and you constantly monitor your temps, then for the "how" I suggest the QuickBoost feature in Gigabyte's EasyTune program that came with your motherboard - and no higher than level 2. ESPECIALLY if this computer is needed for other things or users for school, work, email, photos, banking, etc.

In any case your system is working so I think you are wise to just leave it.
