I'm not as savvy about memory overclocking as CPU overclocking, pretty new to it actually, and I just wondered if someone could give me some input as to whether or not I can get any performance improvement by overclocking them. I'm wondering if there is something that I'm not utilizing or that is set below optimal. My FSB and rated RAM Hz are not the same currently.
Thanks for any advice/help!

Here is my CPU-Z output:

ram at 1:1 is ideal i recall.

if your memory FSB is above your ram FSB you likely wont see much real world gain.

Unless you benchmark, Mr Guv is right. There really isnt a point to running your ram faster than 1:1.
