The 970 is a great OC platform and the 4100 OC's great, your PSU should be able to handle a modest OC on both card and CPU. I would recomend first NOT using the gigabyte software for overclocking, use the Catalyst Control Center to adjust your cpu speed to say 4GHz with the slider and you can also overclock your GPU with the same software. Test the OC on your CPU by running PRIME95 (download it its great) for an hour or 2 (overnight is better) you can download OCCT and run tests for your GPU as well as being an excellent test of your powersupply ;)
Being in argentina you will have to worry about heat alot more than us up here in the Great White North, so that may limit your overclocking ability, as for Power Supplies... Corsair/Seasonic/Rosewill/antec Sentey makes some decent server cases but I have no experience with thier power supplies, but 80+ bronze and up is what you want ;)
Have a great day
There are so many things that I don't understand.
There's a world within me that I cannot explain.
Many rooms to explore, but the doors look the same.
I am lost I can't even remember my name.
