Overclock question about ram (max oc)

So I finally got my Phenom II 850 from 3.30ghz to 3.96Ghz, I set my ram at 1333mhz 1.3.33 ratio and Im at 1600mhz now on the dot from 240fsb x 16.5 multiplier at 1.515 volts

I wanna go higher to the 4.0GHz+ range but my msi 870a G54 board says max 1600mhz *OC for ram, would it run into any problems going over? I know if i lower an extra step down to a 1.2 ratio for the ram I can achieve 1333mhz on the dot with a fsb of 250. Is it worth lowering or should I just go beyond 1600?

Sorry hope I made sense :P

  1. as long as stable no problem .. look my benchmark and see in memory setting @900 and my mobo just max 1600(OC)
  2. DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600 (OC)/1800 (OC)/2000 (OC)

    This was taken from the details page on your MB and by that it says you can go higher because the board supports the ram overclock up to 2000mhz.
