I noticed that DDR2 RAM has very high timings like 4-4-4-12 and 5-5-5-15... but DDR 400 RAM has timings liek 2-3-2-6
Why such a big difference?
Also, if I'm going to buy a Conroe CPU, what should the CAS Latencies be on DDR2 RAM?
A lot of that has to do with DDR2 being relatively new compared to DDR. Early DDR had inferior timings to what we have come to know as regular timings.
Another part of the higher DDR2 timings is likely caused by it's higher speeds that it runs at. Often when overclocking RAM, timings are sacrificed to run it at higher frequencies while maintaining stability.
This is actually a pretty fanboyless thread. Perhaps you should keep your flame-provoking comments to yourself.
