Your post makes absolutely no sense. Please fill out your system specs here.

Exactly what is it you're trying to do?

If a mobo specifies that it is capable of running speeds (oc), that means that you have to increase the FSB with the ram at max divider to reach those speeds.

Example:

1333/1600/1866(OC)/2000(OC)

1600 is the max frequency that board can achieve without OCing. If your FSB is 200MHz, then the divider is at 1:4. If you OC your FSB to 250, then at 1:4 your frequency becomes 2000 (250x4=1000 and double that because it's DDR).

And if he has a Sandy Bridge platform? None of that applies.

He asked what it meant and I answered. You can't just not give the answer or meaning on the chance that he might have a Sandy Bridge chip out of hundreds of chips, AMD or Intel out there. If he does it doesn't apply, if he doesn't then it does. Either way, the explanation for "RAM(OC)" is given. At least try to make an effort beyond the minimal.
