Overclocking cpu increases the frequency of ram too?

I have the ocz platinum ddr3 ram sticks show up a lot slower on Cpu-z than it does in the BIOS. It shows that my rams are at 1500 mhz in the bios but they show up at 700mhz when i run cpu-z. I think its because i got the extra 800mhz from overclocking the cpu, but when i run cpu-z it only shows the rams frequency without the frequency added from the cpu so my question is are my rams really running at 1500 mhz like shown in the bios or 700 mhz. Because if i try to bring up the frequency on the ram anymore in the bios it wont let me because of the frequency i get from the overclock cpu.
