Your timings right now are fine, it can only get better if you can get lower, and none of the 2's are going any lower :p

When you ask what are the best timings that I should be running at, the answer is probably as simple as...the lowest that your ram will run at the highest speed you can get out of them. You will just have to test them to see what that will be.

First see if they will run at 2-2-2-11 at default speed, if not, then go up to either 2-3-2-11 or 2-2-3-11 and again start increasing the fsb and see where that gets you. For best results, you should find you a couple of benchmarks that you can run and document your results, that way you can find the combo of timings and fsb that gives you the best overall performance.

You might also take a look at some of the stickys on ram. Sometimes people will post their results and you'll get to see what others, running your ram, are getting out of theirs. That will give you a sense of what to expect from yours.

Like Reefa_Madness said :p
If you're running them at 2-3-3 then I assume they're C2's... doubtful if you'll get better than 2-3-3. Unless they're rev1.1 in which case you've scored some bh-5's. But speculation is useless, only testing is the answer. Also keep in mind that higher fsb at slightly looser timings may give you higher bandwidth... just gotta find your niche
