memory question

404 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Asus Mobile
ok just a quick question here. I know that when looking for memory, generally lower CAS latency means that the memory should be quicker. But what about the timings of the RAM.

For example, this RAM has CAS latency of 7 and timings of 7-7-7-20

but this RAM has CAS latency of 7 also but timings of 7-7-6-18.

does that mean the kit with the lower timings should also be faster or can someone please clarify what the timings mean on the memory and why they r sometimes differnt. Also what do the first 3 numbers mean in the timings compared to the last one? Thanks for the replies

Basically, the first number has the biggest impact on performance, and the last number has the least impact.
