After I overclocked the cpu (q6600), I want to overclock the ram.

There are two ways to make it faster: increase the memory frequency, or
lower the timings.

What is the systematic approach to getting the max throughput out of the
Do you increase the memory frequency until the system becomes unstable, and
then tweak the timings, or the other way around?

I have a gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L mobo. I can adjust the memory frequency
multiplier from 2 to 4. So if the main clock is 300Mhz, a memory multiplier
of 4 would results in 1200Mhz for the ram. I can also adjust the timing
