Basically, not many applications would really see much of an advantage when overclocking. Really the only benefit is if you are overclocking your CPU and you want to keep your Ram:FSB ratio at 1:1. You may see a small improvement in benchmarks, but other than that, it won't really help you.

+1 RAM is already so fast that overclocking it doesn't yield much real-world benefit unless you are using applications that specifically are hard on your RAM. For instance, WinRAR. If you spend all day unRARing stuff, OC your RAM lol.

I agree with both above ^

Higher benchmarks is the only thing I can think of that you would really notice a difference in.

If you're benchmarking competitively, it's important; Super PI really loves memory speed.

If you're not a Super PI whore, then there's no point.
