Is this enough to handle a gtx 570 overclocked and cpu overclocked to 4ghzish?

Link to the cooler?

4Ghz is nothing for an i5-2500k. I still wouldn't do it on stock cooling, because the heatsinks are small and the fans are loud, but any decent $30 cooler is plenty.

As far as the GPUs, you need good airflow to keep them cool, and hopefully you have a spot separating them on your motherboard. My top card idles ~30 degrees warmer than my bottom one (mostly because I have 2 monitors connected and it doesn't go into a low-power state), but full usage they're ~10 degrees different, and that may be because my bottom card has a nicer cooler (it won't fit in the top slot).

As long as you're not letting the hot air accumulate in your case, you should be fine.

It costs £19/35$?

Superior in its performance, this cooler possesses a copper base, aluminum fins, and three heatpipes which accelerate heat conductivity and effectively transmit heat to the fins. A 9 cm super quiet fan will halp draw heat away from your PC. Besides, tool-free clip design enables an easy installation. Best of all, It provides a comprehensive thermal solution for Intel and AMD systems.
