How to make 1600 OC memories

I want to OC my CPU(Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz) but i have 1333 MHz memories.
I have to buy 1600 memories. Alright...BUT, my motherboard says 1600 O.C.. So i have to buy 1600 memories and overclock them manually in bios. And then i can overclock the CPU, right?
Also, my motherboard has an OC switch. Could that be easier then going to bios n all that stuff?
And also, if i have to OC the memories manually, can someone help me as i never made an OC before.
Motherboard model: MSI 770 G-45
Memories(the ones im gonna buy): Kingston HyperX 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 4x2GB

Hello, and welcome to the Forum.

I will help.

First off, do you know how to Overclock and what it does?
If you do...great, let's get started.

Second: When it says "1600 MHz OC" on a motherboard, it means that 1600 MHz is not standard. it does not mean you necessarily need 1600 MHz RAM. It means you can OC the RAM you have TO 1600 MHz

We will start there First.
