motherboard and have been using memtest86+ (v 1.70).
The board has a Core2 E6300 (1.86 ghz) clocked to 2.04 ghz (with stock
cooler) and I'm getting about 3335 mb/sec for the memory speed on
memtest. What sort of memory performance speeds are typical these
days in mid to high-performance and tweeked systems?
Re: What's a good memory performance speed (mb/sec) these days?

yes, artificial, but, nevertheless, quite important.
if algorithm uses more-or-less big quantities of memory that does not fit in
processor cache, and if it doesn't use some complex computations, it's
highly likely that it will run as fast as memory bandwidth allows, less
depending on clock speed of processor.
thus, if you overclock your processor, but your memory is running slow, for
some applications you can have poor performance
