when you raise the fsb to oc the cpu the ram automatically overclocks too.
You can change the ratio too but to get the ram back to the default speed you need to raise the fsb by a certain amount. I'm pretty sure that for me (e2160) the 800mhz ram spots are when the cpu is at 1.8ghz, 2.4 ghz and 3ghz. Probably 3.6ghz too.
So right now my cpu is sitting at 2.55ghz (will oc more when I feel like it.
) the ram is at 425mhz (850mhz effective) since if I lower the ratio then the ram becomes something like 700mhz and I'd much rather have 850mhz than 700mhz.
