I've researched on the net for an overclocking guide for my combo and ended up with these settings for a 4.5Mhz CPU clock:


As you can see the DRAM Frequency runs at I think Default, 1333Mhz and I'm not sure if it increases if it runs at 4.5Mhz? I think it doesn't. I've selected the XMP profile that's available but the system is unstable and BSODs. So it's set to AUTO.

What specific settings do I need to get the RAM to run at the rated 2133Mhz or higher, stable at a 4.6Mhz clock? I know I have to adjust to Manual from Auto but not sure which parameters to manually set as I'm trying learn.
