Why isn't my ratio 1:1? First overclock ever (with e4300)...

Basic Specs:

e4300 processor
asus p5w-dh deluxe
2x1gb Patriot 800mhz extreme performance ddr2
- stock voltage: 2.2
- stock timings 4-4-4-12
Raptor 150 gb hd
SATA DVDrw
Corsair 620watt powersupply
silverstone heatsink and fan

Overclocking specs:
FSB to 300mhz
core voltage to 1.375
memory to 900 mhz with stock timings

Cpu-z is giving me all sorts of crazy readings, is my setup resonable though?

More about ratio overclock with e4300
  1. if your fsb is at 300mhz for 1:1 you need to run your ram @ 600mhz (not 900), or you can try to push your fsb up and then respectively adjust ram

    Thanks for clarifying that. Will there be any negative consequences on my performances if I keep the current ratios? My machine has passed all stability tests with these settings.

    probably not, but some people (including me) prefer to run ram in sync with fsb that is 1:1
