if you are going to overclock a graphics card do it manually. look for nVIDIA overclocking programs

You can use it if you want but I dont trust dynamic overclocking software. Id use rivatuner or ATItool to overclock it manually and keep it there, changing clock settings constantly cant be good on its life.
A+ certified.
I now am on the interweb:

eh, thats DOT stuff comes with the drivers you install from MSI. Go to Nvidia's website and install their drivers instead, then download coolbits and install that. Thats about the simplest over clocking there is.
