its possible if your psu can handle it.

Keep a look at your temperatures though, as it is very tight and warm with three such powerhogs...

Yes, you can overclock nVidia cards with SLI enabled.

 

It really makes no difference if you have SLI enabled or disabled. I would suggest you find a common ground between all three cards, and set them to the same clocks.

 

Also since your cards are watercooled, it would be best if you reflash the cards with your stable overclock settings, you can also try some overvoltage. When you reinstall your OS, the OC won't be something to worry about, the setting will be preserved in the VBIOS.

 

Don't try to set any records, just find a good balance between performance, power consumption and heat output.

 

As for the advantages of this little endeavor, they will be almost zero.
