OK... ok. I think I've read that before. Either way it makes sense and I would much rather CPU speed also. With my Gigabyte Assassin2 mobo I could tune the ram seperately from my CPU. So I could easily drop the speed of my ram (Lower than it's rated speed to make it easier on the IMC) without directly affecting the CPU (or the OC). Hense my wondering why slower RAM (Not slower settings) would be beneficial to Overclocking.
