Is this overclock okay and proportional?

Can a few people check and give me their input on this overclock? It's a new clock with the RAM I've just tried out and Windows booted fine.

Old Specs before the new RAM overclock are in Signature.

Ram speed looks a bit low to me, but that depends on what ram you are running. Just booting up windows isn't a good indicator of a stable oc. You need to stress the cpu and ram with something like prime 95

My max data transfer rate is 333, so I can't exceed 666mhz (or my stock RAM clock). Should my RAM have a higher clock? I thought RAM didn't work well overclocked :|

You won't know how well it works till you try it and stability test it.

Find a CPU speed you're happy with, and make sure that's stable with P95. Then bring the memory speed up and test if that can handle the extra speed.Memtest86+ is what you need to check the memory.

I had a 1333MHz memory kit that overclocked all the way to nearly 1800Mhz. I was impressed to say the least!

Well I used that last night and turned my computer on today and the system reset to its default clock. So I guess it wasn't a very good one?
