Windows 7: CPU Overclock and memory

CPU Overclock and memory

Hi,

I just got into windows 7 around 2 weeks ago as almost the same time as I got my new rams, OCZ Dual Channel Gold PC2 8500-5-6-6-18. Before getting time, I've tried some overclock but it never showed in windows but right after I got them, I pushed the FSB to 266( running E5200 2.5ghz) to try to match the rams speed. My question is: Is there a reason why windows only shows it when my FSB is at 266, otherwise at 240, it doesn't show but only in CPU-Z.

Thanks.

PC2 8500 RAM is DDR2 1066 RAM. Therefore, a 266FSB speed on your mobo, would only be pushing the RAM chips at (266 x 2) 533mhz. That's 1/2 the speed that the RAM can run at.

Any advices on what I could do to optimize it? If I leave my FSB at auto, it'll run at 200, wouldn't be that slower for the ram?

Test I got from everest.
