I am going to overclock to around 4.00 GHz or higher (processor speed) and I want to overclock around that amount on my GPU to get better graphics and my RAM to make my system a bit faster. Also how does overclocking actually work and how would I do this (do i need a certain software?). Here is my system:
Intel i5 4670k
Gigabyte Z87X-D3H
MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning OverClocked Graphics Card - 2GB
Kingston KVR16N11K2/16 1600 Mhz 16Gb kit (2X4gb)
I also have lots of cooling systems as well I will have 5 case fans, 2 fans on my over clock edition gpu, one fan inside psu, one cpu cooler/heatsink (Cooler master hyper 212 EVO). Also after I first test it if it gets too hot I can buy 2 more case fans (my case is Zalman Z11 midi tower case) and I can always buy more cooling devices.
Thanks.

The manufacters make the components to work within a "safe speed" you can always overclock them, meaning pusshing you componets to work faster. You can do that on the BIOS.
