I just want to overclock SAFELY without having to burn anything or if there's no way to do that, then I won't overclock, I may overclock the CPU because its the easiest one to overclock, just add a liquid cooler and your ready to go, so I gues that's the CPU, now how can I overclock the motherboard, graphics card, ram, screen, and my desk (joke you idiot!). I think the screen is from the graphics card software and for me has the lowest priority... Ram has less than that GPU, and the GPU has the most priority. My properties are:
Ram: corsair 16gb (8x2) 1600mhz or something (do I need to upgrade because of the other specs outweighing my rams?)
GPU:gtx 780 sc EVGA with twin fans
CPU: i7 4770K 3.5 oc
Screen: Samsung screen fhd 22 inch.
Case: coolermaster haf x full tower.
Motherboard: sabertooth z87
Thanks in advance :D

Your ram is fine. You don't need to overclock ram at all. The time it takes you to overclock the ram will be more than the time you save with faster ram.

For your cpu, I would just get a good air cooler like CM Hyper 212 Evo. Be sure to read all the overclocking guides. If you don't want to burn anything, I would just put a mild overclock to 4.0. Find whatever voltage works with that for your chip.

GPU is simple to overclock. Just flash the gpu bios if it doesn't already have one that can overclock. Run software like msi afterburner and just adjust it however u like.

Overclocking isn't difficult at all and is safe as long as you stick within the suggested limits ( for example, below 80°C for CPU temp and no more than 1.4Vcore). You will also need good cooling, as you can generate a lot more heat. There are lots of guides out there so search around. You may also find people results, average OC, volts, temps and this can help you know what to expect. This does not mean you will get the same results, you may get better or worse.

I would try OCing the CPU or GPU first. RAM is different. Always start out slowly as well. Overclocking bit by bit will help you to see what changes do and don't work. Very important to watch your temps, especially during stress tests. Errors, BSOD, Artifacting and crashes mean your settings are not stable. Important to note is that even though a stress test might say your OC is stable, doesn't mean it is stable everywhere. I OC'ed my RAM 2 weeks ago and found out recently my OC does not like Crysis 2. Neither did the GPU OC.

When you have you CPU overclock and start on your RAM, you may find it to be unstable a lot and crash or BSOD, so downclocking your CPU a bit can help to keep stable. With the RAM, there are a lot of advanced timings that I wouldn't recommend playing with until you know what they do. Just sticking to your four basic ones should be alright.

Search around for some guides. There should be a few out there, but if you need specific details, you can always ask. Remember, take it slow and have fun!

Thank you for your answers, I really appreciate it. I will not overclock my RAM as they are the hardest, and they're not really that much performance boosters, so I may overclock the cpu with liquid cooling, and the GPU, I really have no idea how to safely do it. and the motherboard I have no idea either. Thank you!

If you're talking about an All-In-One liquid cooling solution, don't waste your money. Just get a Noctura NH D14 air cooler instead. Much cheaper and cools just as well or better: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/h100i-elc240-seidon...

You're lucky to have an Asus MB. There is a lot of useful info on OC'ing Asus Haswell boards, like this article on Hard OCP: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2013/06/01/intel_haswell...
Pay particular attention to the recommendations in these articles written by Asus: kylebennett.com/ASUS/OCingGuidev0.99.zip
Here is a video that I posted a while back. It is an interview with an Asus expert who tells some pretty good recommendations for OC'ing the Haswell platform: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1768982/haswell-...

Good luck!

Well thanks for all that help! Much appreciated, and the price/quite/cooling ratio was helpful thanks, now I know which one to buy. Again, really appreciated, one more question, is it a popular cooler that can be found in local stores?? Thank you!

You're welcome!

I don't know about "local stores". I ordered mine from Amazon. Newegg has it also but Amazon had the better prices.
