Overclocking should always be done manually, from within the bios.
I would not advise using software from within windows, and not without a better cooling solution than stock.

And even more so if you have a pre-built machine with locked bios. They generally can not handle, or deigned to take the stress.

Either way, Overclocking is never 100% "safe".
Theres always a risk, as you are running hardware beyond specifications.

having said that, the "safest" way, , is with a Motherboard designed for it, as well as aftermarket cooling.

Just my 2cents, but in the end its your decision.

Ntune as far as im aware only overclocks graphics cards, which arent overclockable through bios. but yes manually with ntune would be the way to go for overclocking grahics cards. and you dont generally need aftermarket cooling for small increases on graphics cards, compare stock clock speeds with clock speeds of factory overcloced cards (ie 8800gtx vs 8800gtx superclocked edition. you're usualy ok to go a little below that on stock cooling.

nTune will also overclock an nForce motherboard. But I've had bad luck with it just playing for fun. The testing almost always locks up even on very modest overclocks. Also I'm off using nForce motherbords for good. The nvidia storage driver seems to be single threaded and has horrible threaded write performance and even now after 6-8 years of being available their firewire implementation is completely broken and unreliable. Back to Intel boards for me on the next round. Always rock solid performers if not the fastest around... (but always within like 2%)

In the winter I manually overclock about 10% and in summer put it back to normal in the BIOS and don't have any problems. But each system is SO specific, just the multitude of ram choices alone make it quite touchy.

nTune does not seem to function on my Windows 7 x64 system. The most recent version (of nTune) is old, btw.

A CPU is designed to run at a specific voltage-power setup. To push that voids your guarantee and upon inspection, Intel-AMD can tell if busted hardware has been overclocked. Sort of like going 7 mph over the speed limit. If you dont think you will get a ticket-think again.
