Like I said it's not my max - I'm sure I could get this to run over 700 if I wanted to leave my fan on 100% all the time... I also think it's probably my RAM that's overheating because my reported temp stays in the low 70's at 666 whether the fan is auto or 100%

Is there much reason in pushing the core up but leaving the RAM lower?
