More about : cas ram nukemaster a b } Memory June 27, 2013 8:26:24 PM Low cas is better. In many cases, if the board and cpu support it higher speeds can help. Outside of benchmarking, many users will not notice the difference. Best solution SchizTech a b } Memory June 27, 2013 8:26:56 PM Share Lower CAS is faster. CAS is short for CAS latency, that meaning how long the delay is between when the RAM is queried and how soon it responds (measured in clock cycles) Can't find your answer ? Ask !
