I recently built a new i5 system and im a little curious as to the memory setting or what exactly I should be looking for as far as timing.

Motherboard - MSI P55-GD65 LGA 1156 Intel P55
CPU - Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156
Memory - G.SKILL Trident 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000)

Im currently trying to tweak the system to use it to its near max. Right now the chip is overclocked to 3.15 but im not sure what I should be looking at to know if the memory is running at the full 2000? If I use the program CPU-Z what or how do i know if the memory is running at 2000? What numbers should i be looking at?

I got those exact same components and am just researching the best way to manually overclock my CPU/Ram/GPU and basically just see what I can do! Just installed my Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, which instantly dropped my idle temps ya, I am just surfing the net right now, seeing what I can learn! Just googled: "overclocking g.skill trident on p55-gd65" and got here...but ya, any help would be much appreciated! Like are there some goto tutorials out there for OC Noobz or something? I might as well start there... :p
