  1. Asus P5N-T is a 780i Nvidia chipset motherboard. You can unlink the RAM and keep it at 800mhz, while working on the CPU overclock.

    This doesn't mean that you shouldn't get faster RAM. Getting faster ram does give you headroom to run a 1:1 Ratio while overclocking.

    If you do decide to get new RAM, I've read good things about this OCZ Blade kit:

  2. you can run fsb 400 mhz (1600 for 3.2 at x8 multiplier)
