i5 doesn't work like that as far as I know. There's no FSB.

the multiplier of the i5 is 20, so to achieve 4ghz, you will need to have 20x200mhz. so for i5's, what is the speed of the ram to be able to get the 200mhz?

so for ddr2, its 2x, but what is it for ddr3? 8x? if its 8x, then i should get 1600+. right?

Your overclock is less dependent on your RAM with i5 compared to socket 775. Especially if you're not throwing on a mass of sticks. 1600mhz ram should do just fine, if you can't get it stable at 1600mhz (should be able to do that on a 200mhz base clock which'd mean you'd be running your i5 at 4ghz) then I'm sure it'll do 1200mhz. And I doubt you'll notice the difference.
