Hi all,

Is there any real difference between 4-4-4-12 and 5-5-5-15? (for saying something).

I read that lower values are better, but which number is more important in that series? is there any big performance difference between them?
 
You will need benchmarks to tell the difference.

Box #1 has Crucial DDR2-1000 RAM in it, stock timing: 5-5-5-15-2T. Before I put the TR Ultra 120 in, I was running at 3.3 GHz (367 MHz FSB) at 3-3-3-6-1T. Memory I/O went up 6% and half of that was from going from -2T to -1T.

yes, i read that big difference can be found by going to 1T, but what about the first 4 number?

44412 vs 55515

I'm not looking for real data, just experiences like yours !

I recently switched from G.Skill 2x2GB 5-5-5-15 to G.Skill 2x2GB 4-4-4-12. Haven't noticed a difference at all. But it makes me feel better knowing I have tight timings.

I went from 2 stick to four. I went from 1T to 2T, from 400MHz to 333 MHz memory bus and did not notice any difference in use.

My opinion: don't bother with that..
