When I overclock my CPU, my RAM's Speed seems to increase. I understand that the RAM needs to be locked, and so does the GPU before overclocking; for a safe overclock. However, I am unsure how to lock the RAM. I've gone into BIOS, but there doesn't seem to be much option. One sec, I'll reboot my computer and take a screen shot and edit this post.

Anyhow, before I do so, could anyone explain to me which is better? RAM Speed of 1:1 or 4:5? Here's what CPU-Z shows:

I've set the speed at 4:5 by setting the frequency to be at DDR333. Would it be better to drop back to 1:1, which is default? Both RAM modules are capable of 333; actually, they are 333MHz sticks. So which is better? Sorry if I'm causing any confusion, or asking too many questions.

Thank you. Any help will be appreciated. :)
