Just go into BIOS and keep your CPU base clock (clock before multiplier) equal to your RAM clock (long-story short: half of your advertised RAM clock on DDR).
ie. you have DDR 667 your core mem clock 333.5mhz
Unless you are underclocking your RAM, you will need your cpu at 333mhz too (I believe the multi on a 6300 is 7?) putting you at 2.33ghz (unless you lower multi). 2.33ghz is a pretty easy OC on a 6300 and I doubt you would even have to change your voltages for that. Because you arn't going exactly 333.5 and because of fluxuations, cpuz might say it is 7:8 or something, but it is essentially 1:1 and you wouldn't notice the differenece otherwise.
EDIT: Some BIOSes might have an option to set the ratio to 1:1, but that will result in underclocking to 1:1, not overclocking and it would reduce performance.
There are other, more experienced users here who may give more sound advise if you want to stick around to hear their replies, but as far as I know, my advise is accurate. Correct me if I'm wrong.
