I gave up. I'm running 3.6GHz on the cpu, and my ram is at JEDEC standards for 1200mhz, 8-8-8-19-31 1.5v. 2400 on the uncore, 1.2v. It's tri channel ddr3 so it's not going to be horribly slow.
On the plus side, I was offered a 2600k that can do 4.5 on stock volts and a high end MSI p67 something or other for $230. I am taking the offer, but it will take 2-3 weeks before I can afford to buy it. Once I have it, I will trade off my 920 and rampage 3 to a friend for his 960 and locked down prebuilt motherboard. A bit of a downgrade, but in all honesty I think I could appreciate the simplicity of that, and the simplicity of 2600k overclocking as well.
At that point I will have my main machine with a 2600k at 4GHz running off and on for us (off while gaming, on otherwise) and a stock 960 running for us 24/7. I will also have a 1090t, but unfortunately it will have to be put away for the time being. No room for it here in this apartment, but we are looking into moving into a house eventually, and once we do that I will have that up as well, 24/7.
Nice price on a 2600k combo!
If I saw one for that price I would definitely have to delay my FX-8120 rig for a little while....
