i7 3770k cpu question

this is a random question but does anyone know if there is a way to access more cores within the i7 3770k CPU.

I currently am maxing out my cpu already about a month into my new custom build. I hover between 4.6 and 5ghz overclock (thanks to a corsair H80 liqcooler) - would like to increase the ghz but I am unconfortable pressing the 1.5v limit even though at that voltage my temps are only around 50-60 C

So did I either f up my choice in cpu purchase or can I unlock some hidden core performance I am just unaware of?? If I just need to upgrade CPU, what are my choices at this point besides simply the i7 3930 6core?

Reason is such a cpu hog now with the reracks...
