Tight Timmings Please Explain?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Please if anyone can explain what are the benfits of tight timmings for example DDR3 1600MHz at 9-9-9-24 timmings or at 8-8-8-24 which would be better and why? Also this might like a dumb question but if the timming is tight does this mean more heat? Also can I leave things like QPI/VTT Voltage on Auto?

Tighter timings simply means that there is less latency to do a specific task. When you're looking at the 4 most common timings, the first one listed is called CAS (column address strobe). For an example, if the timings were listed as 8-9-9-9, the CAS 8 describes the fact that it takes 8 clock cycles to access the column that holds the memory address that the cpu is looking for. The first listed timing, CAS, is also the most important and they get less influential from there. However, don't be fooled, there are far more timings than those listed on the simple product descriptions.
