I've done a bunch of OC competitions and even managed to win a couple. The best thing to do IMO is to read forums like Extreme Systems and find out what people are willing to disclose. If you get to know a really good RAM guy, he can help you with the timing optimization - at least a place to start and a general flow to work through the options. I've had simpler, more stable OCs using Mushkin RAM. Some good luck with Crucial, but less stable.
But - why OC? Do you truly need the power? If not, run stock until you run out of processing headroom. I've only needed to OC for gaming rigs, video editing and showing off. I no longer see the need to OC for gaming.
