You will have to find out what best suits you situation when you get the stuff. Everything comes into play, for example; i had 2GB of G.Skill ram which overclocked to almost 1100, but when i put another 2Gb in from a different batch i had to lower it because they obviously didnt overclock as well.

So it really depends how luck you are, but from my experience the q6600 on a P35-DS3R is a great combo.
Why would you have your ram at 1100 when your FSB is only at 366? The performance gain is basically non existent when the ram is clocked past 1:1 with your divider. I'd put those bad boys at 1:1 and tighten the **** out of those timings.
