Thread Starter 
Is it better for system performance for me to run my ram 4-4-4-4-14 T2 or 5-5-5-5-13 T1?

Run a RAM benchmark with both settings. That's the only way to know for sure. Going to T1 will have a strong effect though. Good luck with stability.

I have a similar setup to yours but with amd instead of intel. Going 1T on mine at 800Mhz did nothing except my sandra bandwidth by about 300 pts, which is nothing to write home about. All other benches I ran were pretty much identical. I have no idea the effect it would have on a C2D system, u just have to run some benches and post the results if u want some outside opinion. These sticks were not really meant to run 1T but give it a go, perhaps a little more vdimm will help stabilize. I found i couldnt get over 800 Mhz very much going 1T, but 2T lets me hit up to 1067Mhz.
