i have a question about my i7 950.. i want to overclock it to 3.8ghz for a 24/7 overclock but when i do so.. my ram is going to work at 1660 mhz.. how can i make it work on the normal speeds? do i have to mess with the timings? if so.. what timings should i get?

No leave the timings, they should be ok for 1600MHz since that's what it was at.
Raising the baseclock automatically raises RAM speed so you must use the RAM divider if you want to keep the RAM speed fixed. It should be somewhere in your BIOS.
