  1. Answer: Use both.
    First get into the BIOS and set the RAM multiplier to the lowest ratio.
    Then use the OC utility (like ELEET) and overclock in gradual increments paying close attention to voltages and temps.

    Here is a great guide: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:lklBTFbNnbQJ:www.tomshardware.com/forum/253365-29-core-overclocking-guide+Guide+to+overclocking+the+i7&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

    Good luck!
  2. I prefer to change everything inside the bios. make sure your FSB is over 325 but below 450 and just fiddle with the multiplier and voltages (In small increments)
