Setting the memory ratio to 1/1 runs the memory at the same speed as the FSB(system clock).

Setting the memory ratio to 4/3 runs the memory at 75% of the FSB, or 100MHz when the FSB is 133MHz.

Since the only way to overclock the multiplier locked Pentium 3 is to increase the FSB, which you are already doing, as long as your BIOS is set to 1/1 then you ARE overclocking your memory.

If you decide to push your FSB beyond 150MHz, you may find that you need to set the memory ratio to 4/3 because the memory won't overclock well enough. However, if you do push the FSB beyond 150MHz be sure to make a back-up copy of your harddrive with a program like Norton Ghost.

You can't fry parts with operating frequency, only heat and excesive voltage kill parts. Don't worry about your memory getting hurt.
