My System Specs

Default

A very simple answer would be: the lower the better for timings.

There is generally a trade-off between timings and frequency- pc6400 runs stock at 800MHz (or 200MHz FSB depending on the ratio set in the bios)

If you were to overclock your memory to 1100MHz, you might need to relax the timings to 6-6-6-15. or if you ran your memory at 677MHz, you might be able to tighten the timings down to 3-4-4-7

tight timings with slower clockspeeds can offer the same performance as loose timings with faster clockspeed.

There are TONS of articels out there going into more detail on this if you have the time to read them.

And yeah- I wish I had your RAM.
