    Any overclock should be done in the bios then tested for stability.

    Remember do not overclock with parts you cannot afford to replace. There is NO safe overclock.

    For the GTX 550 you should use nVidia's nTune or MSI Afterburner(works on other brands too) or the utility that comes from your graphics card manufacturer.
