I've heard that speed is better for RAM instead of CL instead on X58 platforms....is that true? I've been thinking about changing to more low profile RAM <50mm

any suggestions? has to be 3x2 GB and <50mm

Speed is an essential component of latency.

Speed usually, but not always, trumps timings. Really depends on how much you can adjust them and still maintain stability.

X58 need more speed. Not only that it can also supports ur CPU for a higher OC.
If U are using really highend CPU then 1600Mhz won't get u to the extreme even with very low timings.

Yeah- looks to be about the same height as if you stacked 2 ram sticks on top of eachother without the heatsinks.
