Maybe Im not seeing it but what video card are you using? If it is ati then download the atitool from omega. There newest radlinker doesnt allow for Ram, But the previous does. Bit of warning, Be careful of heat output. Dont overdo it, Some of us dont listen to warnings, and fuse video cards!!!!!

Oveclocking RAM isnt as much about mhz as other items are, RAM is all about timing, how often a certain action occurs every so many cycles, some of the terms to kno are CAS, and RAS, you can get definitions here, http://www.pcwebopedia.com/TERM/C/column_address_strobe.html but what you would do is set these timmings in the BIOS to smaller values that the rams performs functions in less clock cycles, but if your timings are to aggressive the the system ca become unstable, resulting in hangups, and sudden reboots. so try one timing change at a time and then test for several hours.
