Default Question about RAM

I have two Kingston Hyper X Blue Ram modules. One is 2GB CL9 1600 the other is 4 GB CL10 1600. My questions are will the CL affect my RAMs performance because they are not matched. What does CL stand for? And what about memory timings?

|ASUS M5A97 R2.0| AMD FX 6300 3.5 GHZ|16GB (4x4) 1600MHZ DDR3 RAM|ASUS Radeon HD 7770 1GB| Kingston HyperX RAM|Kingston Hyper X 120 GB SSD|WD Green 1TB HDD|

|ASRock N68C-GS FX|AMD Athlon II X3 450 3.2 GHZ|G.Skill 8GB (2x4) 1600MHZ DRR3 RAM |Geforce 9800 GT 1GB DDR5|Seagate 500 GB HDD|

|Macbook Pro- Intel Core i5 2.4 GHZ|8GB DDR3 RAM|Samsung Evo 840 240GB SSD|

Default Re: Question about RAM

Timings don't really mean much anymore. The 2GB stick will default to the lower timings of the 4GB stick. You will not notice a difference in performance.
