Ok so I have 2 sticks of this RAM;

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820134636

And I have an ASRock motherboard. Basically I have read several articles about changing the timings but it wasent really ugh.. comprehensive enough for me. In other words it didnt really explain how it should be done, like what are the first steps you take when OC'ing your ram. If anybody could help out that would be fantastic. Thanks

From 6-6-6-18 to 5-5-5-15 you will notice a big difference.
Keep in mind this is DDR2, changes between latency are bigger than with DDR3.
Considering that what you have is value RAM with no heatsinks on, I wouldn't expect that RAM to do that much more than 800Mhz 5-5-5-15 or 5-5-5-18. I wouldn't even raise the voltage of the sticks (unless it's a small raise i.e. 1.85 or 1.9v).

Make sure to test stability with (my preferred) SuperPi and IntelBurnTest, and you can also use Prime95 and if you wish, memtest86+ (though memtest is more for testing the stability of potentially defective memory instead of memory overclocks).
