It seems to me that DDR3 latencies are coming down and speeds are going up a lot quicker than DDR2 latencies and speeds did. That might just be me though...

Wow, seems DDR2 is maxed out and now all companies are plodding on the DDR3 line. Impressive looking ram and nice heatsinks to boot. Wont be too much longer and the timings should go down to around 4 or 5 :)

Unless im mistaken and correct me if im wrong on this the higher the clock speed the higher the latency in general (i mean sure you can reduce latency to a degree butg not by that much really) and last i checked DDR3 clock speeds are going up and the clocks will probably for the most part either stay put where they are or go up 1 or for latency. Correct me if im wrong about any of this please.

And yes i hope we all know that its better to have higher slock speeds than lower latencies

Not always. My system does better with 1000MHz 4-4-4-12, than it does at 1200MHz 5-5-5-15.

Everything that is ram intensive. And I mean everything.

but last I heard was that when it came to games Higher MHZ was better than latency????:confused::confused::confused:

It just depends. Sometimes Ram can do more work at a lower frequency, but tighter timings, because it's getting more accomplished per clock. It depends on the difference in frequency and timings.
