overclock the GPU and RAM seperately, so you can find both their limits.

Nitestick: there's no trick to it. just put them on the top of the capacitors.
you can see them on the last pic of my guide:

put some As5 on the heatsinks, I do, and I raise the volts a bit.... put a good 80mm fan on it, or just go out and buy a Cooling block o.0

I think you have just reached the limit for your core. I don't think many G71s do any higher than that anyway though, so that is pretty good.
