Quick question, Im probablly missing some of the fundamentals here but im trying to get to grips with overclocking.

I was wondering...
If FSB dictates how fast my CPU can talk to my RAM and my FSB is 333MHZ (a overclocked q6600). Is there any point to overclocking my RAM which is DDR2 6400at 800MHZ
Is it not already running faster than the cpu can talk to it anyways?

Hope someone can clear this up for me thanks in advance!

Every system is different. Some will benefit from a higher clock speed, while others like lower timings. Try different settings and see which ones benchmark the best.
