I don't have much experience with C2D/Q systems other than building them, and running them at stock speeds, so I'm hoping someone else will give a good answer for Intel setups.

For AMD (since the introduction of the hypertransport bus), since there's no front side bus, there is no such thing as running the ram in a 1:1 ratio anymore. Internally, memory runs on a divider from the total CPU speed, so every extra MHz gives higher performance.
