actually not a stupid question, but a hard one to explain on a forum:
last two numbers (3, 5 -or- 4, 12 by your numbers above) are tRP (3, 4)and
tRAS (5, 12).
tRP is a little difficult to explain, but i linked a guide below that can get you started on what those numbers mean.
tRAS is (basically) the delay between memory access. so if your tRAS is 5, it has a shorter time that it has to wait to begin the next command compared to 12.
timings were pretty confusing to me before i started reading up a lot on them, but htis little guide will give you the basics:
A Guide to Memory Timing
so, yeah those timings are muy bien
i can get my corsair down to 4-4-3-8 1T...
dont think it will go any lower, but watch me try.
