Gigabyte GTX 560 GV-N56GOC-1GI SLI: Can I overclock?

I have 2 Gigabyte GTX 560 GV-N56GOC-1GI cards in SLI mode. To get games running smoothly and to prevent crashes, I have my cards downclocked to 810MHz. Although I get great performance in games, I am wondering if there is a way to further overclock these cards without having any issues. Gigabyte cards lack good voltage control, so I am not sure how I could do this. If I run a single card, I can overclock it to 925MHz with no problems. Thanks in advanced.

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB 1600MHz
PSU: Corsair TX750 V2 750 W
GFX: 2 x Gigabyte GTX 560 in SLI
Display: Acer 22\\\" X223W
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 64MB

Case: NZXT Phantom (White)
Cooling:
CPU: Corsair H60
OS: Windows 7 Professional Edition 64-Bit

tweak it up little by little, my guess is 8~10% increase... max? - 15% if you wanna try, wont kill, especially since you have 750w PSU

and if it doesnt work, you'd know that you've tweaked it up a bit too high cause the game just stops running

i have the same board and the same card =)

I tried... I guess it is best if I just leave them at 810mhz. I'm finding my system to be running better than before though. Used to have flickering in games and boot problems.
