i managed to reach 4.0ghz with mine but i only have 6gb of ram.

with more ram your overclock will be lower so see what you can get it to with the 12gb of ram and then that will be probably the max you can get.

dependent on what voltage you are using and cooling will also limit your overclock but also try turning off the hyper threading as that helped with mine.
