I have read the overclocking guides and ram guides and i just want to make sure I understand it correctly.

Intel CPU's are quad pumped meaning a 533MHz processor would show up as 133MHz FSB in BIOS.

DDR RAM is double timed so that DDR333 PC2700 RAM would run at a maximum of 166MHz FSB.

But RAM only runs as fast as the CPU FSB so the previously mentioned RAM would operate at DDR266 (133MHz FSB) but allow for an overclock until the max DDR333 speed is reached (166MHz FSB).

Please correct me if this is wrong, I wanted to make sure that I understood the relationship between FSB and RAM.

Regards
