Default Re: Ram question

yeah the timings are the only difference. And the one with the smaller timings is the faster one, not by much but faster is always faster.
Though it says "This memory has been verified to operate at 675MHz at the low latencies of 4-4-4-12." on both of them, so I guess that even if you would go with the 5-5-5-15 one you could go to the bios and change them to 4-4-4-12.

1st I was going to tell you that you shouldn't call it CAS latency, but then I noticed they do it on that website too. (I guess you just copied it from there) Seems pretty unprofessional to me since as far as I know CAS latency is just the 1st number. So with the 4-4-4-12 the CAS latency (aka CL) is 4.
