Default Help needed to OC PC2-8500 RAM


Im kinda new to OC and was wondering if something can help me config BIOS settings to get my RAM up to its rated FSB, 1066Mhz.

Im running on
Abit IN9-MAX
2Gb PC2-8500 Corsair

At the mo I can only get up to around 450Mhz for each stick.
Is there a way for me to get to around 533Mhz?
I set the FSBRAM ratio in BIOS to 4:5, but it changes to 5:8 everytime I get into OS and check the specs in cpu-z.

I hate to break it to you, but unless you plan on running 533 FSB, you basically wasted your money. (and, yes, I wasted my money too )

You don't just "OC" the memory. You raise it along with the CPU when you raise the front side bus.

You've got to run RAM exactly twice your FSB.
