the crashing will have more to do with messing with your Mhz than the apature.
you have to consider that when dealing with these superfast cards, especially the high end 4600 that you are allready close to the upper limit.
the ram may be able to do more, but usually the Core is very sensitive.
overclock a bit at a time. work out the limits for the core & mem.
