Use MSI Afterburner to overclock.

Overclock the core going every 10 mhz. Stress test it with a program like MSI Kombuster. Stress test it for 10 mins each on ever 10 mhz. If you notice artifacts, lower it back 10-20 mhz.

For the memory, go up 5 mhz and stress test. Memory is more sensitive to overclocks so you have to be careful. Repeat until you see artifacts, go back 5-10 mhz.

For the shaders, there should be straps, I think your card's shaders go every 25 mhz on the shaders. Do one strap and stress test, repeat until you notice artifacts and go back a strap or two.

Good luck.

Edit: heres a guide for general overclocking for GPU's.

And a guide for shader straps.

Do each of these steps of overclocking one at a time, don't overclock the core, shaders, and memory at the same time or otherwise, you won't know what caused the artifacts.
