Next time do your research first. CL8 is better for gaming (more FPS), and cheaper too. See the bit-tech article referenced earlier.

Maybe I am misunderstanding you. But how would cl8 be better than cl6 at the same frequency?

Intel loves speed but AMD loves lower latency.

So Intel Speed > Latency. Easily, you can just run CAS 8 and slam your ram @ 1800MHz if you wanna. Also, speeding up the ram on Intel rigs lowers the latency also

AMD Latency > Speed. I'm running 1666MHz @ 7-8-7-20-1T cause I'm on AMD, Ya I could loosen it to CAS 8 and increase the speed but I get lower latency so why not.

CL8 is the sweet spot. Personally I would buy CL9, overvolt a bit and push the speed as far as I could.

I don't see where you see that the CL8 beats the lower CL7, in every test (except for one outlier) the CL7 beats the CL8 at the same frequency. Granted they didn't test CL6, but I don't see why the trend wouldn't continue..

Am I missing something here?
