700/1200 is pretty ridicioulous. The memory will likely top out around 500-550, and the core might do 550. Those are just rough numbers, you could get more or less, but 700/1200 ain't gonna happen without volt mods, and some uber cooling.

Overclocking puts "more than usual" stress on a component. It won't kill it in like 10 days, but it will shorten its lifespan, but unless you're going to use it for 8 years, you've got nothing to worry about.

More cooling will always better, could even allow for a higher OC, but like I said, it'll last much longer than you'll be using it.
