Ocir,

Well, try it to find out, that is how all overclockers do it. If it doesn't work, go back into the BIOS and change it back, simple as that. And liquid coolers are better than air coolers, though sometimes louder. It will drastically lower temps. However, don't get any holes in the tubing else your GPU and more will get wet.

Ocir,

That is something you will have to determine yourself. Most likely, the improvement will be unnoticeable, but you can test it with 3rd party utilities or see if it makes any difference in the WEI scoring in windows. Overclocking is good for things like games, but the more you do it, the more your CPU will wear down due to use.
