Thats a perfectly executed OC you got there. You could try lowering your command rate to 1T, and the CL to 2.0 depending on how good your ram is. The HT is at 1021, which is above the suggested 1000, however, alot of rigs can deal with a minorly oc'ed HTT. Awesome oc, really nice temps, I think you could go further if you wanted to aim for 3.0! Should you decide to go further, look into water!

You wouldnt be adjusting the ratio, you would just be adjusting the timings. I would say try it out, but only if you are interested in eeking out those last few miliseconds in super pi. If you are happy with the speed you are running at leave awesome as awesome enough!
