Cpu- i7-2600k
Cpu Cooler-Custome waterloop
Ram- Corsair Dominator 4x2gb 1333
Gpu-Evga Superclock Gtx 580 Watercooled
Physx-Gtx 260 watercooled
Motherboard- Msi P67A-GD55
Case- Corsair 800D

Here are the overclocks that I am shooting for.

Cpu-4.8ghz stable since my current is not.
Gpu-Vcore 1.138 Speed- 955/1910/2200
Physx- 750/1620/1200
Ram- This is where i need the most help.

The cooling system I have is made up of 1 360mm rad, 1 140mm rad,xspc res/pump 1/2 ID tubing all fester brand, koolance waterblocks.

The goal of this is to get a stable overclock on all parts listed above. Its going to take some time and I will need some help.

The graphics card may be auto-throttling due to Over Current Protection. Have you benchmarked a lesser GPU overclock?

And I wish you good luck in overclocking those four 2GB stick of RAM.
