Do let me know the QPI/DRAM voltage if you can. I am using the Noctua NH-D14 and am at 4.41GHz @ 1.29V v-vore and 1.275V QPI/DRAM voltage. My RAM is also @ 1.66V.
Also, is your clock stable? How'd you test for stability? Running Prime95/OCCT/LinX on a stock cooler must be quite scary!
Checked, 1.255v QPI. I run Intel burn test. I like it because its really quick to tell you if its stable or not. You'd be amazed at how well the Intel stock extreme CPU cooler does. I was shocked that the temps are kept so well under control. (I keep CPU fan at 100%). Sometime this week I think I'll be testing my liquid block anyways.

Do they even make a PS capable of handling that kind of load or would we be looking at a 2 power supply rig, especially if the 590's are heavily overclocked!
Ya, I am sure you are hitting VRAM limit. Surround can only use SLI. There are only two possible configurations for the GTX590. 1x 590 alone or 2x 590s connected through a single SLI bridge. Check out the Antec HCP-1200. Best PSU out there and tested to handle 1600+ watts.
