    Use MSI Afterburner and a decent cooler.

    The CM 212 Evo is the best budget cooler at $30. The Noctua D14 is the best at $90. Or you could go fancy with water cooling.

    Download MSI Afterburner. Its the most popular OC tool.

    Also has video capture. No more pirated FRAPS.

    I suggest watching a lot of videos and looking at guides if you want to overclock.
    A few posts on this thread won't help you to safely overlock.
