i run my ram between 433-500 mhz all the time.
the article sui linked is a good one.
leje, it's not that no one knows how to do it, lots of us do. but it is difficult to explain to someone if they dont know anything about how ram timing affects overclocking and vice versa. or don't know what the timings themselves are for.
i think that if you spend a little more time on the forum you will find that there are some very smart folks around that can give you good pointers.
not all of us have time to explain it from square one, though.
as sui says there are many factors that determine your ram speed. for instance if i lower my multiplier to 10 from its stock of 11 it gives me a cpu/5 divider. if i leave it at 11 i have a cpu/6 divider. so in essence, with a 10 multiplier, my cpu will run slower but my ram will run much faster. and my amd is different than an intel (note i have no fsb).
and thats just a few of the details involved. its kinda complicated until you know more of the interaction of your system.
not just, "presto chango my ram is overclocked".
