You should use the BIOS to overclock your processor and graphics card. For cooling you might want to consider a Cooler Master Hyper 212+, Corsair H100, or if you're really ambitious an XSPC Rasa watercooling kit to loop between your processor and graphics card. In that case you would have to get a waterblock for your graphics card.

Never, ever, ever use a program or some instant OC thing to give you overclocks. Sometimes they set the voltages unnecessarily high for the clocks there at. Its not worth it, use the BIOS. And custom loops are awesome, those all in ones aren't as good, but they're cheap.
