    Looking at overclocking my system but I'm getting a bit confused, and some guidence would be great.

    If I do over clock the system does the memory have to be over clocked?

    My specs are:

    Asus P5Q Pro Turbo
    Corsair XMS2 DDR2 PC2-8500C5 (4GB) Twin sticks
    BFG 8800 GTS 640MB
    OC2 GameXstream 600w Slinet SLi
    Zalaman Cooler

    Bios Settings as now without overclocking:
