yeah pretty much. i know that if i run my cpu full tilt and my ram overclocked to max, my (super pi/ 3dm06) scores are a little better than if i run my cpu full tilt and keep my ram tight (like 3-3-3-9 tight). but not nearly enough to warrant running the ram that hot.
memory benchmarks will put the lower latency set up a little on top. plus yes amd's (from my experience) tend to like low latency. i forget the formula, but running ram at 3-3-3-9 1T at or under 800mhz is not much different than running it at like 1100mhz with 5-5-5-15 2T. but its a lot cooler.
what jumping bean says above is one thing that is different with intel/amd...
amd has no fsb, so there is no bottleneck between the cpu and memory (unless it runs faster than 2000mhz).
