I'm going to upgrade to an AMD A10-5800K. Will I be able to overclock it on a MSI-7778 motherboard? Will my CoolerMaster CM12V be fine if it does? I have the motherboard with a A8-5500 so I could check BIOS if that's a solution. Thank you.

That motherboard looks like a HP specific one so I'm guessing this is a HP tower, which would also make sense given your cooler as HP also tends to use these low end Cooler Master ones. In a nutshell, I would say no to overclocking. Almost all OEMs lockdown their BIOSes to disallow any sort of overclocking. Plus, I wouldn't exactly trust any meaningful overclock with those VRMs on OEM boards. You can check in the BIOS, but my bet is there's nothing there regarding overclocking.
