I may be wrong but I think they are used to overclock your system without having to change anything in the BIOS. Basically a safe overclock for people who don't want to delve too far into tweeking the BIOS.

Now of course because your on OCN, you won't be using this feature too much however I think you night be able to link it too change between overclocking profiles.

Your best bet is to read the manual, but if its still not clear try googling it

You'll definitely want an aftermarket cooler, a coolermaster hyper212+ is a great $25 value. also make sure your motherboard supports overclocking, some OEM's lock bios settings to prevent it for warranty reasons.
