System Gaming Performance

Hi, I recently built a computer with the following specs. I've been seeing some problems as far as frame stuttering and moderately low fps for the system. Also, with my cpu I have tried to get the voltages down as far as possible. However, prime seems to fail with anything short of 1.31 vcore. Would the cause for some gaming issues be my RAM? Could a lower ram Mhz be the problem? Also, what is going on with my voltage requirements? I've seen people do less than 1.6 vcore OC and keep temps under 70 with my HSF. I know the Noctua can keep 4.2ghz at below 70c :/ . Please reply.

Games used:
Napoleon Total War (can play maxed out but FPS can go to 33 sometimes)
Amnesia the Dark descent (can't play maxed out average fps is about 50 but I am getting a terrible tearing effect on the screen and I don't want to use vsync)
GMOD (works fine, actually)
ArmA2 and ArmA2 OA (Bad fps in towns.. explosions lag.. running screen stuttering.. overall lagg)
Fallout NV (plays maxed out at like 80fps but i am getting screen stuttering every time i move my mouse even with vsync)

System:
Processor: intel core i7 950 (4ghz) w/ Noctua NH-D14 and defauly paste
GPU: GTX 580 SC (8.17.12.6658 driver)
PSU: Zalaman 1000w
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster P2450H, 60hz, 1600x900, 2ms response
HDD: Hitachi HUA721050KLA330, 7200rpm, 32b cache
RAM: Corsair dominator 6gb 1333 (set to about 1150hz in bios. However, CPU-Z is showing it to be 571.5mhz wtf?) RAM Timings: 7-8-7-22

What motherboard, bios, and what case?

Did you manually set your ram voltage, speed and timings? I would suggest that.

571.5mhz x 2 (ddr) = 1143mhz. So 1143mhz is the speed your 1333mhz ram is currently running at.

Sorry I forgot to list those.

Case: Cooler Master Haf X
Mobo: rampage 3 formula
Bios ver: Megatrends 0402

Yes i configured the ram timings, voltages, etc manually.

How did the system run with stock clock settings?
I'd have to bet that rig would run all of the games listed, at highest settings, with no lag in stock config. So I would try that first just to see if you're dealing with an overall stability issue, or something that was introduced by the clocking.

It also looks like there is a version 505 bios available.
Might want to give that a shot.
