all i want from this chip is 4.2. also since i oc'ed my nb should i also oc the ram to 1600 "originally its 1333 but kingston said it'll work @ 1600" or the current 1400 would do?
The "CPU NB" is actually the integrated memory controller. Running it at a higher speed will make it run hotter, and it is on die and will contribute to overall CPU temps. Getting your RAM to 1600 will be a bit iffy. The integrated memory controller on Phenom 2 doesn't necessarily play well with higher frequency RAM, and it may affect how high you can push your CPU/CPU NB. I'd recommend getting everything settled first, and then seeing if you can push any more out of the RAM.
