The time to get into overclocking Wardy is when you HAVE plenty of money as your on dodgy ground when trying to squeeze every last ounce out the system.
Personally I hate overclocking but others may be in to it, stick around mate and find out.

Nah, Maynard, increasing the voltage to critical components beyond factory recommendations is completely harmless. :D

Modding seems kinda interesting sometimes, though. I recall one PC World magazine that had a case mod to turn your functional PC into a functional PC/coffee maker.

Case modding is a personal taste/choice (a lot of money for nothing more than a look so it's not for me)

Overclocking (similar to Wolfey) unless you have a TON of extra cash you're not using (for when you burn up a component and it's not covered under warranty any more due to your overclocking) and a lot of patience (hundreds of reboots to tweak and test, tweak and test configuration changes) then not something to get in to.

Only two? When I fix coffee for Bonnie we get up to the 5-6 range. :D
