It depends on soooo many things.
If your memory was not set so it ran right, you'd get instability, crashes, and odd behaviour.
Some memory will run at that speed all day, it depends on the exact chips in your sticks, your northbridge and memory controller, and what voltages you feed each of those items.
You may need to push the memory and NB a little more voltage with OC'd memory.

As you start to increase the frequency, the CPU, NB, and RAM all start to overlock.

At a certain point, you either have to bump the voltage, loosen the RAM timings, or even drop the RAM multiplier to get it back to a stable setup. Same goes with your CPU and your NB.

It's all a balancing game to find what your particular setup likes. That's what makes this so irritating and fun all at the same time.
