Well, I've got only 2GBs of this, and a Core i3-530 on Gigabyte H55M-S2H mobo. (As I listed here: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/263256-29-overclockin...)
My question is, can I get a decent stable overclock without pushing my RAM beyond limits? Thanks. =)

yes this can stable but limit OC
for 3.5Ghz default RAM 1333
for 4Ghz clock with down ratio RAM to 3:8
- Your RAM need Heatsink
- Get more stabe Go down ratio 3:8 (1066) can get Max CAS & LATENCY maybe 8-8-8-21
- if not OC too high u can go ratio 1:1 (1600) Cas7 LAtency same default
- don't over volt extreme max 1.6 ~1.62
- For OC need 2*2Gb RAM for maximum!

^ i-Cores don't use ratios

But basically that's right. You can't push the RAM to higher speeds or voltages - it's definitely not meant for that. But you can push the CPU higher and use lower RAM multipliers.

Also I agree that 2gb RAM is a bare minimum to just run a PC these days. It would be worthwhile to upgrade to 4gb.

Agreed - when I went from 3 gb to 4 gb dual channel my win7 score went up quite a bit.

wolfram says: i-Cores don't use ratios

i don't agree about ratio this is depend on CPU !
I have 2 RAM value I OC max in default ratio 1333 can get max 3.5Ghz (non Black Edition) RAM get 852 in CPU-z
And go down ratio 3:8 can get 4Ghz CPU Clock set RAM get 749 in Cpu-Z
I always use it for everyday!

I just mean they don't use ratios because the i core system is just multipliers of the base clock. I realise it's sort of the same thing, but for example you simply can not get a 3:8 ratio of the base clock. RAM is either 6x, 8x, or 10x for non K series. QPI is 34x or 36x, CPU can be anywhere from 9x to 21x, some CPUs go a bit higher...

So for his CPU to OC he could use 8x166 (1333mhz) and then probably max out the CPU with turbo and all the power saving stuff. Or maybe 8x175 for 1400mhz at stock voltage and latency, although if unstable probably 8x170 or so would work...
