1. ATITool only adjusts the speed on your GPU, it doesn't touch your CPU.
2. For a GPU or a CPU under load, 50C isn't that hot.
3. The lag spikes you are talking about is probably due to the result of your GPU being overclocked too high. Try resetting the GPU speeds back to their default setting (make sure to apply changes), and if that doesn't work, try uninstalling ATITool then restarting the computer.

It is possible that you may have damaged your graphics card by overclocking it too high. In this case, the only option would be to get a new graphics card, unfortunately.
