Then again

When you OC, you stress the system. That means you need the best cooling you can get or find yourself lacking. While you pick water-cooling is that capable? Further, under such circumstances you find a level where everything seems stable. That doesn't mean you can OC into the ether, you need to find that happy medium. Sometimes that isn't what you want but it is where it works best. Thus, increase cooling and/or best fit of components that working together offer all it can be. Sorry, that's the best answer, as gamers tend to never be happy and/or for long. While dual video cards are capable, expect problems there via power and cooling as well, regardless if supported by the mtrbd..
