According to this, it is overclocked, but if it's an EVGA card (look at the card itself to see who made it), it could be overclocked at the factory, so it should be designed to handle this overclocking. You typically can change the clock settings by going into your GPU driver settings. It might be under "Device Settings", "Performance", or "Clock Settings"

The GTX 970 is superior in all respects to motherboard/CPU graphics (for rough comparison the link compares Intel HD 4600 with the GTX 970). So I recommend that you connect both monitors to the GTX 970. Buy the adapter, something like this: https://www.startech.com/AV/Displayport-Converters/DisplayPort-to-HDMI-Adapter-Converter-Cable~DP2HDMI. Have fun!

SpeedFan's fire symbol doesn't really mean anything by default; you must configure the thresholds for each status symbol yourself. 60 degrees seems like a rather realistic temperature while the card is in heavy use. You might want to check your GPU fan to be sure it is cooling well: if it is very high (75-100%), you may want to check for dust blocking the ...

No, not for this card at all. Thermal shutdown for a GT 610 occurs at around 102~c so you are well under. There are plenty of posts online about overclocking this card successfully. I wouldn't worry about it until you reach 80~c+ and at that time I'd just look into finding a better way to cool your internals or getting a better card. As far as speedfan ...

TL;DR This is normal operation for power supplies in a dynamic system. There isn't much you can do to "fix" the voltage overshoot. Overshoot is quite common in electronics when a power supply ramps up to match a load and then briefly exceeds the requirements and then has to pull back. It is a feature of every adaptive system that uses a feedback loop to ...
