yes they are. you were paying attention. good!

one thing that has me dumb-founded is all the ocers going through tons of mem to see what they can do with them. must have deeep pockets... i on the other hand don't oc. just need something that is fast and stable at standard settings.

for those of you that do, what is more important; frequency or CL?

apparently from what i gather from around the net, one off-sets the other.

if hrz is high, high CL takes you back down.
if hrz is low, low CL brings you back up.

what gives?
