Either MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision or RivaTuner are fine for OC, just use the settings to overclock.
OC a little at a time & each time do a test with Furmark or EVGA OC Scanner to check for high temps & artifacts.
Don't overclock too high at once, you'll instantly burn your GPU.
Here's a good place to start: A guide for overclocking your gpu

It's perfectly normal, when on desktop the card doesn't need to run at full speed, but speeds up when playing games or video. So don't worry.

i overclocked it bit by bit to 870 mhz for the core and 1700 for thr memory core it when fine in the furmark but when i played a hd 1980 / 1080 on powerdvd the kernel message came up in the tray icon says driver and stopped and recovered successfull so i clocked it to 800 mhz and 1000mhz do you think then 800 mhz and 1000mhz is good keep in mind at 870mhz and 1700mhz there was no artifacts and no high exessive temp
