I don't have any heatsink on my PC3200 ram. The stock frequency is 200MHz. I have it up to 208.6Mhz. How High Can I go tell the ram blows?

Well with my CPU at stock with stock timings on the memory i can only get a 5% overclock. So your ram is pretty much at it's limit, just lower your ram in the Bios to 333Mhz and you can overclock further. Your ram will return to it's full speed as you raise the FSB.

Do you know the actual model? There are several G.Skill PC3200s. Including mine, which does 270 Mhz at 2-2-2-5. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

I'm not sure---but its at 200Mhz when the timing is 2.5-3-3-8. Is that normal with no over clocking?

There should be writing on the individual chips themselves, with the original chipmaker on it (G.Skill just assembles this stuff). If you can't find that (they rub it off sometimes), just go ahead and up the speed, while testing with memtest86 to make sure it works properly.
