im just confused about ram and their timings

some ram sticks say timing 7-7-7 or 9-9-24

just dont get what is faster like is the higher number better or what??

and also if a motherboard says it will accept 1600 (OC) will it also take reg 1600 ram?? not OC

thanks for the help!! :thumbsup:

with memory, the lower the timings, the lower the latency, faster the clock speed the better memory. So lets say your looking at 2 sticks of 1200 mhz DDR2, ones timing is 7-7-7-24 the other is 9-9-9-24 (just for instance) the 1200 mhz ram module with 7-7-7-24 timings will be better. However, a 1600 mhz DDR3 stick with 9-9-9-24 timings will be better then a 1200 mhz ddr2 stick at 7-7-7-24. So you basically need to decide on what type of memory you need want, speed wise, and then look for memory of the proper type and clock speed with the lowest possible timings for optimum performance. So basically, higher the clock speed the better, lower the timings, the better.
