The type of memory I have is in the title. I'm not sure how overclocking goes with memory as I have almost no experience (I overclocked my phenom ii x4 955 be, but that was easy).
What I wanted to know was what happens if I just change the mhz thing from 800 (default) to 1333 or 1600 without changing the timings. Would I have to change the timings manually or would they change on their own?
If I did have to change the timings, how would they differ from 1333 to 1600 (the timings, not performance)? I assume I would change the timings to 9-9-9-24 if I set the mhz to 1600, but I'm not entirely sure.
Like I said, I'm really new to overclocking, but I'd also like my memory to at least work to some of the potential as advertised.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

The 1600 is available as an option right away. Also, it boots at 1600 from 800 without changing the timings or voltage, but it seems... wierd. I didn't do any stability tests, but there were things that made it seem like it was unstable. It was like playing an hd movie on my old laptop.
