you can hurt anything when u overclock too high lol....the difference with the i series is that the memory controller is integrated onto the cpu chip....before with the core 2 series the memory controller was on the board so there was less of a chance that you would hurt it when overclocking. With the i series there is a base clock that you up to overclock the cpu speed this in turn with increase the speed of the memory because the controller which is on the chip runs off of the base you have to be conscientious of your memory speed when you up the base clock
