That cpu will easily hit 4 GHz just make sure you have good cooling cos that will heat up fast with 4GHz as for the ram im not to sure you can have a go but in all honesty you'd be best off buying 1600 MHz ram rather than OC'ing

ok so I will buy 1600mhz ram and the zalman is a good cooler my temps for the most on idle is 32 on idle ( depending on the weather) and loading it hits 47 degrees...Can I just change the fsb and it will oc to 4ghz? Or must I tweak the voltage and other stuff?? F.y.i I don't even know how to tweak the voltage lol

oh lol:)
I just oc'd it to 3.8ghz just buy increasing the fsb a bit
idle temps 38,23,32,39
Loading temps are 51,43,50,49
When I tried to raise the fsb to 445 and it didn't go higher...I know I'm missing something but just don't know what:(

Have you tried increasing the north bridge voltage? It helps a lot. Keep load core temps under 75°C.

what CPU voltage are you running on that over clock?

now you see buddy I don't know how to change the voltage:/...Its still on default voltage:(...And when I raise the fsb my ram frequency decreases..Its standard 1333mhz but last night it changed to 800mhz:(...The only thing in the bios I tamper with is the fsb coz I don't know what's going on there:/

Sory to tell you this but stop what you are doing at once and replace your PSU before you fry your PC if not your house

That Raidmax PSU needs to be replaced and to die ASAP

Then what psu must I get? Gx 650? corsair gs650?
Yes, it's absolute crap and will most likely take out some other hardware with it when it dies (which, it will. You can be certain of that).

Check the link in my sig for a good PSU.

Seriously, listen to Shilka. If Shilka says "stop and don't start until you've replaced the PSU" you should stop and go PSU shopping! Heed the advice given.

The Raidmax Hybrid 2 is one of the least good units Andyson has ever shot out of their factory and thats saying alot when its Andyson we are talking about

No dont use it anymore its a turd and it could very well die at any second if you start pushing it

Dont take the risk its cheaper to replace one PSU then it is to replace everything in the PC because the PSU has killed it
