I hope to get some real good information here.

Look, i want to increase the overclock. And to keep the temperature controlled, i've been thinking about replacing the stock cooler.
Here in Brazil, i have found this one:

What do you say about it?
Hey! It's been a while since I've last been here. Well the problem of my frequencies "scaling" necessity as I posted more than I year ago I think, turns out to be temperature regulation, or I should say, the whole Pc case ventilation. The PSU fan was malfunctioning and eventually broke down and had to replace it with a temporary, weaker one, I've had the case open ever since because of this.

Even before, CPU temperature would rise to 80 and above in matter of seconds(ran multiple tests with AIDA64 Extreme) as well as GPU temps would go too high for it to handle the OC, therefore system freeze/crashes were inevitable.

If you have problems with keeping your hardware at an acceptable temperature, don't think twice about getting something better for it, or some day tomorrow you might end up buying a new GPU instead of just a new fan for it.

This summer I'm planning on replacing my PSU and getting a liquid cooler for the CPU, as well as buying a new GPU because of new incoming games such as Dragon Age: Inquisition (developed with Frostbite 3), I might add I'm a great fan of the series.

Because of this sadly, I didn't have the opportunity to actually overclock anything since it would basically set my Pc on fire. The manufacturer of my GTS 450 is ASUS (photo below) and on it's original box it says you can get 50% more "speed" just through voltage, if you can get that working with your frequencies it might get a pretty nice boost I'd say, if you want to go that far of course.
