Ram BIOS settings, expertise required

Hi guys,

SOrry for posting again but can someone tell me if what i have done is correct.

I have MSI 770-C45 Motherboard which says it takes ddr3 1600 as an overclock, so the guy in the shop said it will run fine on the board but at 1333, fair enough thats what I had done and was happy with it at this speed.

However when I changed the FSB:Dram ratio to 1:4 it shows as 1600, happy days I thought, but I dont really know what its doing. Everything is running great but is there anything wrong with doing this? I have googled it but can't get my head around the idea, should I just turn the ratio back to Atuo and have it run at the slightly slower speed?

Thanks guys.

I'ts fine. The board is designed to overclock quad pumped ( 1:4 ) 1333Mhz ram upto 1600Mhz.

thats what you're doing.

If you ant to drop it back down to 1333Mhz, select the SPD setting in the bios.

Thanks I am new to overclocking and dont tend to do it alot but I thought I might as well get the extra speed out of the RAM.
