Hi Drivr3g, to overlock your ram you go int your rigs BIOS, and click where it says "Adance Chipset Features". If you raise your RAM too high, your system may crash. If this happens, don't stress. The issue can be fixed simply by raising the voltage on the RAM. Raise it using very small increments and try each setting to see if it's working. Once it is, you can either keep it or try to push your RAM farther.

CAUTION: If you give your RAM too much voltage you can fry it.

Also, another thing is your latency timing. Which is, CAS, tRP, trCD, and trAS. Notice on your link where it says, "Memory Latency 5-5-5-15"? That's what that is. You can tighten your timings, for example yours are 5-5-5-15, you could bring that to 4-4-4-12. Maybe.

A lot of times, actually, most times, overclocking is trial and error.

Take a look at this OCN Overclocking Guide
