Can i oc my pentium e5400 @2.70ghz to 3.5ghz on stock cooler?

Yeah, maybe. But as @Plouffe mentioned, change the paste, and as @TheKDub mentioned your motherboard has to support overclocking.

I overclocket a E8400 to 4ghz on stock cooler with stock voltage. So should be feasible.

Hello,

 

Not really you should look at something better or repaste your stock cooler because it's probably dried by now.

I doubt it. It'd depend on if your motherboard supports overclocking, as well as what the stock cooler you have is.
