Thing is, the board you have isn't an OC'ing board.
It's like trying to compete in Formula 1 with a Yugo - Ain't happening.

I suppose it's possible to get a mild RAM OC if it has any options for it but that's all I'd ever expect from it too, being what it is.

Even though I know I can't do it but I want to learn. Why do you not want to understand?

The motherboard you have is not designed for overclocking. It may be possible to do it, but there is a very high chance it will not work and you will have random BSoDs, POST failure, programs crashing, etc.

do you want a written tutorial into overclocking ram?

reduce numbers until it stops working.

It's not a matter of what I want.

You're trying to make a piece of hardware do something it's not designed to do, or at the very least it wasn't intended for so the problem isn't mine.
I'll refer back to the F1 analagy - If you want to compete, you gotta get an F1 car, plain and simple and it's the same for OC'ing RAM.
Going with a board that's suitable for the office and that's probrably it, then expecting it to be tweakable like the rest is unrealistic to say the least of it.
I can understand "Why" you want to but reality determines this, nothing any of us here can do about.

I'll be straight with you, no BS here:
We'll tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear but if you don't want to hear, that's your problem; Not ours.

As for OC'ing RAM and other things....

Lesson 1:
If you want to OC something, get hardware that's made for doing it in the first place.

After you've successfully completed lesson 1 you can then move onto lesson 2.

You are really funny. It shouldn't be that hard to understand what you read. Go read some books please improve your understanding.
