Reading briefly... this was covered here. Higher speed with not as good timings are inferior to lower speeds with tighter timings. Charts (proof) included.

True, but he is basiclly saying that "RAM IS CRUCIAL TO THE OPTIMIZED A COMPUTER SYSTEM". Which is not total true.

Hmmm... looking at it from this point of view, then I may agree. In my limited OC'ing experience I can come up with a nice CPU OC and have to bring it down because the RAM OC is being a PITA. Vice-Versa as well. IMO, No single component is crucial. What is crucial is looking for that "sweet spot" were all components become happy with each other and provide the best possible STABLE performance. In other words... you gotta work with what you have basically. More so when one CPU does not have the same capabilities as the next CPU that came off the manufacturing line right after it.

lol!! that sounds like a haiku.. and on another note, so the guy's excited about his RAM, and his new found performance (haven't we all been at one time? That doesn't mean hes out to create misinfo or anything. But yes OP there have been other threads covering this exact topic, check around a little and you may answer some questions a lot sooner!

We have known that amd prefers tight timing for a long time.

As your comment about HDD will account for jack squat.
HDD IS THE BIGGEST BOTTLENECK IN ALL SYSTEM.
HDD is the heart and soul for overall system performance. Without a good tranfer speed on the HDD then your system will account for jack squat.
Thats why that SSD so hot right now.

I remember being a little kid and everyone was telling me the floppy disc drive was the latest and greatest. We've come a long way since those days, no?

Sounds like the OP is happy he switched from Mushkin to Corsair

My cheapo RAM ain't worth a damn for tuning. Can do 1600 CAS9, or 1333 CAS8. More than a +2 HT bump and it crashes with no matter what volts. However I'm doing just fine with 1600 CAS9 and a 3GHZ memory controller, getting great system performance and it shows in benches. Having an SSD sure helps, as well as having a balanced system in general. Super RAM speed and timing...I don't have it, but if it works for you, great. I'm happy just having a 2x4GB set of RAM to cover my resources.
