I've heard things about how PC2 8500 RAM usually gets read as PC2 6400 RAM and used as that, but obviously, you can overclock it.
However, whenever I try to put mine at a 533 MHz FSB, Windows fails to start. I either get a blue screen or Windows starts trying to repair itself.
I haven't messed with the timings yet, but I did try to increase the voltage, no luck.
I've managed to overclock my new AMD Athlon II X4 to about 3.33 GHz and in CPU-Z and I've noticed that the RAM actually runs at around 510 MHz. Does that mean when I raise the FSB of the processor, the RAM frequency increase automatically? If not, how can I go about setting my RAM to a higher frequency without blue screening?
