Help w/ overclocking DDR2 PC800 memory..

Currently I have 8GB (I know.. a little excessive) RAM, with 4GB from G.Skill (5-5-5-15) and 4GB from OCZ Gold (5-5-5-18) in my core2duo system. All memory modules now run at 5-5-5-15. I'm currently running my core2duo E6600 OC'd to 3.5GHz (390FSB x 9), and I'm looking to start overclocking my memory. Memory is running at 2.1V with heatspreaders and a ram cooler. I also do have the option to unlink my memory from the FSB.

With the system that I currently have now, what steps do you think I should take when overclocking my memory?

I was thinking about lowering the timings for 4, and then making sure I'm stable. If so, try to squeeze as much MHz as I can from the clock frequency. Does this seem do-able?

If there is any more information you need from me in terms of computer hardware or specs, let me know as I have no problem retrieving that for you.

I'm really new to memory overclocking, so any information, even if just a little bit, would be greatly beneficial. Thanks!
