overclock ram how?

    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
    memory?
    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
    parameters.

    The general rule is, you'll get better performance by focusing
    on bus speed rather than timings. Keep your timings on the
    conservative side, it will allow you to run the bus faster.
