Timings, tight or loose?

When I read here and there, that timings should be tightened or losen, in numerical terms, what does it means?

Example: If my stock timings are 2.5-3-3-8, what would it be "to tighten" them?
3-4-4-11

or

2.0-2-2-5

lower numbers are "tighter" and higher numbers are "looser"

Yep, tight is better and smaller. You get greater performance through tight timings, tho you may also have to up the vdimm to get them tight. Tight timings also limit your max OC, so its a compromise on your FSB and timings.
