How should one go about abbreviating (a)synchronous? Is the most correct form (a)sync. or (a)synch.?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
The common and my preferred way of abbreviating synchronous is sync, rather than synch, partly because it makes more sense to pronounce it as sink than sinch and the shorter abbreviation is simpler and clearer. Also to avoid any confusion with the slang word cinch (pronounced like sinch).
For similar reasons and consistency, I'd recommend async over asynch.
The graph for async versus asynch is similar. From this I would say that sync and async are preferred.
