Overclock the card consists of increase the speed of your clock and change the voltage, to increase its performance by 5 or 10%. In most cases this is not a problem, but if the heat does not disappear correctly, it can cause the computer to crash and restart.
Many graphics cards are sold with the OC tagline, like this GTX 1050 OC. This means factory overclock. You only need to press the button to activate overclocking. But most cards don't have this function, so you have to do manual overclocking, try different values until the card starts to fail and let us know "I can get here"
