Ram overclocking question
so I heard the golden ratio between Ram and CPU is 1:1. What I'm confused at is that if you can set the clock speed of the ram and the cpu seperately, why would the ratios even matter? I read an overclocking guide and was a bit confused. Since my CPU clock speed is 300 fsb ( when at load ) does that mean my ddr2 ram is only running at 600 mhz instead of 800?
