I prefer to use powerstrip to overclock it. Stop overclocking when you see artifacting. Mine goes to about 70~75*C under load @ 575/1103

Rivatuner is a popular program to use for overclocking. You can get it from http://www.guru3d.com/

Artic cooling make the best heatsinks for V. cards and are very reasonable priced.
