the advanced timings are what'll get you the really good bandwidth tho... if he can get the Static tRead (aka Performance Level or tRD) to 6 or 7 and the tRRD down to around 4, the bandwidth will be awesome... but its pretty hard to find the tightest RAM timings possible at that speed
but SuperPi has a maximum theoretical bandwidth usage limit (around 6600MB/s), so the timings dont matter if you can get the RAM speed up (825MHz will almost guarantee you 6600MB/s, so its really not hard). Another important factor to remember for SuperPi is HDD Speed... again this has a theoretical maximum (its around 115MB/s, so any RAID0 will get the job done)...
so really running, a rig with 2 HDDs in RAID0 and memory above 825MHz will make your SuperPi times limited solely by your CPU clock (and to a tiny extent the actual FSB and latencies)
