    Question Memory timings 4-4-4-12 ------3-4-3-9

    Hi
    Just wondering, are timings such as 4-4-4-12 more aggressive, or faster than something such as 3-4-3-9?
    I don't mean faster as in bandwidth, but more in accessing rows, and columns.
    I understand that 3-4-3-9 has lower numbers, but the fact that the numbers are mixed; would that be better or worse?

    Assuming the clock rate is the same, the tighter timings will be faster (marginally lower latency and slightly higher bandwidth).

    The numbers not being the same are totaly irrelevant; 3-7-2-1 timings (for example) are faster than 5-5-5-15.

    Thumbs up Re: Memory timings 4-4-4-12 ------3-4-3-9

    I see.
    Some of that Dominator has 3-4-3-9 timings, but it's hard to find in stores. That is really what I wanted, but I needed to replace the Patriot stuff I had in there fast.
    I ended up just getting the XMS2 4-4-4-12, it's running great in both computers.

    Anyway, Thanks oralpain.
