You might experiment with adding choline (or phosphatidylcholine) and/or creatine. See Chris Masterjohn's take on treating MTHFR.
I used both PC and creatine on top of things in your list (but smaller amounts of methyl-folate at 400 mcg/day) to drop mine from 10.4 to 6.9.

Your body gets rid of excess niacin by using up methyl groups. So those B vitamins you are taking are diverted to getting rid of excess niacin from the 500 mg you are taking, and are not being used in the methylation cycle to recycle homocysteine. That is why it jumped to 12. You are taking more niacin than your body can use normally.
