Could I push it even more? Right now, I've raised the multiplier to 12x to get it to 2.2 and to run stable, but I see that I could just raise it from the stock 11x166 to 11x200. I'll try it when I get home. Sorry for the noob OC question, but I'm still getting used to this stuff.....

Any chance anybody is in the mood and has the experience/knowledge to answer that question? PSU is a Seasonic S12 500W by the way. (Look at my sig :))
