I have a Core i7 920...on a ASUS Rampage II Extreme. I have never attempted to overclock it, but for some reason I got the itch... IN any case, the rampage II Extreme, comes with a auto CPU level up overclocking feature...so it basically takes the 920(2.67MHz) and tunes its up to a 940(3.00Mhz). this seems to be running fine, however I noticed it also bumped up my DRAM Freq to 875.5Mhz(DDR1750).... My RAM is normally at 800.0Mhz(DDR1600). Is this a problem? Is there a way to overclock the processor and not the memory? I do enjoy the ease of basically push button overclocking, but I dont want to break anything. Please Advise...

Current voltages are :

BCLK Freq 146MHZ
CPU Volt 1.18
Dram Bus Volt 1.80256
qpi/dram core volt 1.33750
Cpu Pll 1.81

Let me know if these are ok....please

If you system is stable, you are fine. The auto OC feature is actually pretty conservative, so any changes made by it are very unlikely to cause harm.

Watch your temps and for any signs of instability, otherwise you should be good to go.

Good luck!
