Well normally you want to drop your memory multiplier and HTT so you are overclocking only the CPU, that way you know the wall is not the memory or HTT.

Once You find the CPU max then you can try overclocking the memory.

If the CPU tops out at 2.9, try adding some voltage, like .05, or .1 volts and then see if it will go any higher.
