RAM speeds and overclocking

I currently have 1333mhz ram running at 1410. Is it ok to overclock RAM with the processor at the bclk frequency? Also, I ran prime95 and the temps were in the 90s for the processor at 100% all cores, but with RealTemp they never got above 65 should I keep it this way?

    Is this correct: Rampage 3 Formula, i7 950?
    Q - What BIOS settings?
    Q - What target OC?
    Q - Are you OC via ANY ASUS Utility?

    1. Prime 95 as a "Stress Test" [overnight once stable]

    2. CPU-Z for Settings Summary

    3. CoreTemp 0.99.x

    4. Memtest86+ to check memory corruption

    5. HWMonitor

  2. I used manual OC at BCLK 170
    my OC target was to get stable at 4ghz
    No use of asus OC
    yes i am using rampage 3 formula

    Maybe it didn't apply the paste correctly or something.

    First, turn-off Turbo Boost, and debate about Hyper-Threading. On my 980X running 4.5/4.6GHz {profiles} both are {Disabled}. If you Apps don't take advantage of HT then you're only adding more heat. You'll notice a big change in Temps.

    'I' try to find the LOWEST Voltages = Stable. Everyone is more, more, more. Voltage = Heat.

    In addition, set your DRAM Voltage manually.
