True, but if you have a very high frequency, having loose timings may still wind up being faster than tighter timings at lower frequencies. I am sure 3-3-3 PC2-6400 beats out PC2-8000 4-4-4, but I doubt it would stand a chance against PC2-1100 5-5-5.

Mushkin just released a new kit that has the best of both worlds... 4GB (2* 2GB) PC2-8500 with 5-4-4 timings.
