ive been trying to overclock my cpu and while i did that i had set the ram overclock on the xmp1 file so it does its own overclock or whatever, while i was using cpu z and it says NB frequency 4500 mhz my stock speeds are 3000 mhz. is this safe and or the true speeds?

not very knowledgeable about this.

Take the "DRAM speed" under the timings section in the Memory tab and multiply it by 2. That is the speed your RAM is running at. Also, when testing CPU overclocks, it is usually best to leave your RAM at stock speeds, so as to rule out any possibility of other problems.
