Default ram timings

i was messing with my ram timings and got it down to 4-2-2-2.5
is that ok?
is there a better option?
Should i notice a difference between the previous 9-4-4-3 settings?

Normally they are listed opposite of what you have meaning

2.5-2-2-4

You and the guy who posted about the corruption are the only ones who I've seen doing it 'backwards'

You should notice like about 200mb/sec difference in bandwidth going from 4 to 2 (meaning the middle numbers as they make a big difference on bandwidth, whereas the CL, and cycle time, the two end numbers, are mainly for stability.)

Every board is different, yours might not have more options than that. Check your manual
