Right i no that if i place my cpu on this format:-

E4600: 12.0x200 = 2.40 GHz
E4600: 12.0x237 = 2.81 GHz
E4600: 12.0x250 = 3.00 GHz

Now my mate says if you overclock the cpu you need to drop youre memory speed but i got 800mhz ram it running atm on cpuz @ 400mhz this is sli nividia ram btw it raises to 1033mhz on any nforce board as it has some boosting crap added in it!

Now the mobo i have is a gigabyte p35c-ds3 this mobo handles - The Intel® P35 Express Chipset supports the latest multi-core processors up to FSB 1333MHz and also surports Dual Channel DDR2 1066
Experience the advanced technology of DDR2 1066* memory, featuring faster speeds and higher data bandwidth, which delivers superior performance for the most demanding applications.
And also surports DDR3 - now i got 4gb of ddr2 800mhz is it possible to overclock the cpu + ram to a faster speed than i got on this board as it ant nforce mobo but it shows in the cpuz that the epp and evc memory addons are there yet does the pc know this ? or just cpuz can i adjust this and if yes what to any one give me advice would be thankfull than referring me to another website as im on 56K- (mobile internet atm and refreshing the forums takes 4mins -.-)

Not really, but you may need to drop the multiplier.

I'm a little confused as to what you're actually ASKING here. Are you asking HOW to overclock?
If so, there is no magic answer, read the stickies first to get an overview, and come back if/when you have specific questions.

800MHz Ram is actually 400MHz ram, but since it's DDR2 you double the effective rate thus it's 800MHz effective. Look up DDR on Wikipedia. Anyway since you're talking about raising the FSB by 25% you're also going to increase your RAM speed by 24%, thus it will run at 500MHz (1000 MHz effective), and since your RAM is rated to run at 1033MHz effective you should be fine, so long as your RAM really can run at that speed anyway ^_^.

No i know how to overclock as my cpu and gpu are OC its just i followed a crappy layout from my dad and he thought i had ddr 500mhz or something when i got ddr 800mhz ram and i lowered it to run @ 360 2.0 devider plus my memory can take **OCZ EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) is a feature that allows performance enthusiasts to use a VDIMM of 2.3V without invalidating their OCZ Lifetime Warranty. my memory is located here - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY...(2x1GB)%20PC2-6400C4%20800MHz%20SLI-Ready%20Edition%20Low%20Latency%20Dual%20Channel%20DDR2%20(OCZ2N800SR2GK)

All i want to know is this i got my cpu running @ E4600: 12.0x250 = 3.00 GHz (my cpu is designed with a 12x mutiplier on default *thats not me messing with it* ) now any ways what can i place my ram @? can i make it faster or do i have to lower it in speed or whatever devider thing. or can overclock the memory to perform fast also

Related to this comment- megamanx00

Thanks for that infomation but if the ram ant stable @ the higher speeds what do i do to lower it mate. also from the reveiws comments on the rams link i sent with the 2nd question (Reviewed by: Lordpleb

This ram is running @ 1050 Mhz with my E6600 @ 3.15Ghz WTF super ram!!!!!!)

As you can see even he got higher than my lat rig 1033 lolz

I can't say what it *WILL* run at, but I have a suggestion. Try the RAM multiplier that gives you a speed either equal or BELOW its rated speed. Get the timings as tight as you can, and stress test with PRIME95. Once you have the thing stable, make a note of all your RAM settings and run a benchmark. Note your score.

Then try a RAM multiplier/ratio that gives you the next 'speed' up. You may find you have to loosen the timings to get things stable now.
Benchmark again.

See which works for you best.
