RAM Low Timings vs High Speed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've recently switched from a RAM OC of 1866mhz @ 9-9-9-28 to 1333mhz @ 7-7-7-22 and have definitely noticed snappier Windows browsing & acceptable performance loss in games. I've found that programs that felt like they needed an extra second to open have begun to open earlier (Photoshop o.o) and my ssytem in general just feels more responsive. Mouse input seems to be a little quicker as well.

Is this normal? I'm even considering modding a HD7970 BIOS for tighter timings & buying some Samsung low voltage or G.Skill ECO RAM rolleyes.gif
I bet I could get 1600mhz @ CAS6.

933MHz 9-9-9 should be at least as quick as 667MHz 7-7-7, unless the board sets the subtimings at 933MHz ridicilously loose.
