Default I'm confused...

My friend says he has a wierd motherboard where you can: Raise GPU voltages, overclock CPU and RAM seperatly (RAM is not dependant on the main FSB/HTT)

Is this true? I've never heard of anything like this at all. It'd be pretty sweet if it was true, but I'm doubtful.

He has an ASUS A8N/32 -SLI Deluxe...

[CPU: e6600 @ 3300 MHz] // [MB: ASUS P5N-E SLi] // [RAM: Patriot 'eased latency' PC2-6400 @ DDR800 5-4-4-12-2T] // [GPU: 8800GTX @ 650/1000/1600 (volt modded)] // [HDD: 2x Cavier 500GiB stripe] // [Chassis: Thermaltake Armor VA8000 (black)] // [PSU: Aspire(Apevia) 680w] // [OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64][Cooling: water cooled GPU and CPU]
^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)

Ok I'll put it in simple terms. He can raise the PCI-e voltage. Also you can raise the speed of the ram and not touch the speed of the CPU, it's not for preformance it's for stability testing. I have the option of raising the ram speed on my motherboard but not the PCI-e voltage.

Yes. The Asus A8N *.* SLI boards have numerous tweaks that can be used to balance out the system.
