Overclocking I7 3770K to 4.6ghz

497 2
Only reason why im trying to overclock my cpu is because I have 2 680s and both are not being used more then 50% each while gaming and im not getting the FPS im more then capable of.
Right now I have a asrock z77 extreme 6 motherboard and an 3770k clocked at 4.2ghz at 1.125v, I cant seem to get anymore out of it since I cant even get 4.3ghz out of 1.140v, someone once told me to set the CPU load calibration to level 2 which right now its set to auto and is level 5, I have no idea what this will do. can anyone help me?
Also i play at 1920x1080p with a 120hz monitor and im getting below 60fps in games i can easily get over 120 fps if just my GPUs would work like they should.
