Default Ram overclocking with 680i and QX6700

New to the forums.

I have set up my machine to run at 3.33Ghz stable on air. What has been giving people better performance on their RAM? I have seen some running Linked & Synced, and others set the frequencies independantly.

My system specs:

QX6700 Quad Core
eVGA Nforce 680I SLI A1 Motherboard
2x eVGA e-Geforce 8800 GTX SC
2GB Corsair 9136C5DF
Corsair CMPSU-620HX PSU
2x Raptor 150GB HDs
WinXP SP2

heyas welcome...it depends on the memory I suppose.
I was running my E6400 on a 680i with the OCZ Titanium and was synced at 3.2/800mhz then ran linked at 3.6/900mhz however I found that the stated latency timings were not possible on this board even at 800mhz so I set it to auto and let the memory set its own latency opting for the higher speeds

Welcome- Don't get too hung up on linked/synched. But you might want to try running superPi at linked/synched ddr2 832 with the lowest stable latencies, then try unlinked with looser timings like 5-5-5-12 and then run superpi again at the fastest stable frequency. Let us know what you find if you try it.
