Hi. Im a new beginner to OC and i could use a few pointers.

Im now running with my FSB on 1500 unlinked, so memory still at 800.

Core speed 3000Mhz -->3375 Mhz.
Bus speed now at 375 Mhz
Rated FSB 1500 Mhz.

My memory is 2x2GB Corsair 800Mhz. DDR2

Someone told me that the half of my memorys Mhz is my max Bus speed, is that correct?

So as i increas FSB my bus speed will increas to, so whene it hits 400 thats my limit. Can i than lower my Memory from 800 to for example 750 and get more space for increasing FSB?

My voltage is currently at 1.344 how much should i start to increas with to make it more stable. Whene i hit my max FSB?

And i have no idea what to do with my memory timing that that stuff.
or could someone tell me what voltage to start at.

You really should start here:

It's the Overclocking Guides link. Before OCing, you need to understand whay and what you're changing so you don't do damage to your components. Remember, knowledge is key.

After reading, if you have questions about understanding, then I'd ask.
