I can't help you on the GPU or mem front right now, but here is something for the CPU.
I have the non pro board and a 750K, should be about the same oc experience.
Always remember to update your BIOS and clear old settings by loading optimized settings. Do this before you start to OC.
Enter advanced mode, select AI tweaker, and select manual for overclock tuner.
Increase the multiplier to, lets say 41.
Set CPU voltage mode as offset, increase offset to, lets say 0.075.
increase NB voltage offset by 0.025
Set CPU and NB load line calibration to extreme.
Enter the advanced menu, select CPU features and disable CPB mode, it's the automatic OC function and it will only get in your way.
Save settings and reset.
I know the CM212 EVO can handle the heat output from the above settings without any problems.
Once in windows/linux start running something CPU heavy for a long time such as wprime32, a benchmark, a recent game or video encoding.
If it is stable for hours upon hours of stressing with these settings, feel free to push further, if not try to increase voltage or decrease the multiplier.
If you hit a speed you are happy with, try to decrease voltage to reduce heat output.
I have been at 4.4 GHz, but after handling lots of wprime32 and some folding, it would stall after constant folding or in the middle of a game.
Does your board have that nice little GPU OC switch? If yes, try switching it on and see if the MB can give you some trouble free extra GPU power.Edited by runs2far - 2/9/13 at 6:48am
