Default Question about memory frequency

I just recently built a new pc... Dual Channel DDR is enabled because it tells me in the POST. Anyways, I look at the memory frequency when I boot and it says 200 mghz. Is that the default clock speed for the cpu and memory? Do I need to change that in the bios? I have 2 sticks of pc3200 dual channel DDR400. I dont want to mess with those settings unless it supposed to be higher. Any ideas or info would be great.

Also when I looked at my memory frequency in everest home edition it says:

Field Value
DIMM1: Corsair VS512MB400 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
Field Value
DIMM2: Corsair VS512MB400 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)

Shouldnt it be 400 MHZ?

Hmmm okay. my mobo lets me overclock the cpu and the agp and im wondering if should mess with that a little bit. everest home edition says and so does my bios that my cpu is a cool 30 degrees celsius just idle and gaming i got it up to 39 degrees. should i mess with that with just a stock heatsink fan (amd approved) and one case fan?
