For video cards you can use Powerstrip, or if you have a newer ATi XT brand video card they come with their own OCing tool called Overdrive

and this OverDrive is backed by ATi themnselves, as if your card fails somehow due to overclocking , ATi will not fail warranty. (this is in catalyst vesion 4.3 and above)

Neither am I OC fan, will prefer spending extra quids on buying newer hardware, rather than pushing the hardware out of its limits ( I hate Overclockers!! - No Offence)
