When you ask how the memory is, what do you mean? I have not changed any memory settings whatsoever, so as far as I know, the memory should be fine. Is there something I should be doing as far as memory settings go?
The memory references the CPU speed when calculating its speed, so an overclocked CPU usually means overclocked memory.
Memory speed = (CPU speed)/divider
You can increase the divider if you don't want your memory to be overclocked, however there is no "divider" option in the BIOS. Two things effect the divider: Memory setting (i.e. DDR2 800, 667, 533, etc) and CPU multiplier. You can read more about it here
Just keep an eye on the memory's speed and timings under the memory tab in CPU-Z. If it's overclocked, then you might want to consider increasing the divider by lowering the memory setting, such as switching it from DDR2 800 to DDR2 667 for example. It's fine to overclock your memory, but if both it AND the CPU are overclocked, it's hard to know which one is causing the instability. So underclock it for now, find the max of your CPU, then we can bring in the memory.
EDIT: And yes, when thlnk3r and many others talk about the HTT, they're referring to the reference clock. AMD did a bad job of standardizing names for the various settings, it can be confusing I know.
