  1. 240MHz system clock -- use DDR3 1600
    250MHz system clock -- use DDR3 1333

  2. You do not need to overclock the CPU to make the RAM work at 1600MHz just set the memory multiplier to the correct speed.

  4. I believe his point is that you must enter the BIOS and manually set your RAMs speed, and possibly timings, when using DDR3 1600.

    The system clocks I listed allow you to manipulate the memory dividers thereby keeping your RAMs at spec speed.

    6.67x240MHz = DDR3 1600
    5.33x250MHz = DDR3 1333
