    If the card has good enough cooling then it will stay cool by itself, just go for it and if anything bad happens then just revert back to the old settings. Overclocking is a lot easier now thanks to programs like Afterburner and such.

    Well overclock it a little, look at the temps and decide if you can go further. If the temps get to hot but you want to go further then lower the overclock and get some new fans
