You only use it if your PSU has an 8 pin.

if you really want to use the 8pin here is an adapter,

I just let my board do a modest OC, I would go to the Overclocking and Case Mods and learn from the best. They tend to say start small and keep increasing till stability issues and back off, but it's much more complicated than that simple answer. Good luck and don't cook anything.
