Nope. Also, keeping DDR3-2400 stable is a chore all in itself. You won't notice then insignificant gains, best case sinerio is +0~3FPS. For 'free' OC you HD 6850 with MSI Afterburner -

Yep, you can use MSI Afterburner on any GPU and pre-OC or not you can still OC further -- the question is by how much.
