How do i OC my RAM?

how can I OC my ram from 1866 to say maybe 2133?

I know this is very general, but I want to learn how to do it. I have g.skill ripjaws 4x2 8GB 1866 and asus mobo.

my current mem speed is 24392.25 MB/s. I want that a bit higher....

You want to OC ram you do it through the FSB
everytime you move it from base clock say 200 to 201 the ram moves up like 10 MHz

205- 15 MHz you will notice odd ram speeds once you start doing this

Mind you when FSB overclocking you will have to down clock the Multiplyer too

because the ram oc will also change the freq of the cpu clock so you have to watch both

I cant do it through the RAM timings and divider?

You're also going to run into voltage issues. Might have to increase cpu/nb/ram voltage. This is NOT an easy task. First off, can your CPU handle such high frequency ram?

theres no other way other than OCing the FSB?

Not that I know off. In the bios, the ram has an automatic setting where you can pick 1333, 1600, 1866 etc etc. Have you tried that. Other than that, not that I know off.
