How have you determined that you have a bottlenecking issue? Of course, OCing the CPU can help. Just go slow in your bumps in speed to maintain max stability. Stability trumps speed, remember that.

Your i7-960 is absolutely not bottlenecking any GPU's especially not SLI GTX 560's. See -> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/p67-gaming-3-way-sl... it'll make you feel better ;) 

However, yes you want on LGA 1366 3x4GB or 6x2GB of RAM and DDR3-1600 is very stable on that platform. Especially if the game(s) is/are 64-bit; see -> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ram-memory-upgrade,... note the bottom.
