Two newbie overclock problems

Hello, im new to overclocking. For 2 days I read a lot about how to overclock my CPU. My system specs are Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 on AsRock P43 Twins 1600 with 1 stick of 2GB DDR2 @ 1066Mhz RAM and 1 stick of 1GB DDR2 @ 800Mhz.

So my first problem is that when i get in to the Bios i cant change the multiplier from 10 to 9. I can see the option in the Bios, but i am not allowed to change it.
My second problem is that i can`t maintain the FSB:D RAM ratio to 1:1. - First i set my RAM speed to 333Mhz and then, when i increase the CPU Freq. the RAM speed goes UP too, it automatically keeps the 4:5 FSB;DRAM ratio.

I want to clock my processor to 3GHz (FSB to 333Mhz with 9 multiplier) , but since my lowest stick of ram is only 800Mhz and the FSB;Ram ratio stays 4:5 my system often crashes. Please help and thanks in advance :)
