The first one with the 4-4-4-12 timings are a bit faster than the second set. But in all reality, I don't think you would actually see or feel a difference in performance between the two. Save $50 and get the second set.

Yep, I agree with Atomic Rooster. The first one may be better at overclocking.

Yep, I agree with Atomic Rooster. The first one may be better at overclocking, but its not worth wasting 50 bucks for a small performance boost.
