what does 3-4-4-8-1 mean?

there's this RAM here, it says it's 3-4-4-8-1 instead of normal 4-4-4-12 or whatever...what does this mean? it's pretty expensive for 512

  1. Those are the timings.

    Unless you're overclocking, get normal 4-4-4. You won't see the difference.
  2. After the four widely knowned timings there are several other subtimings, the "write recovery time" is the first of those subtimings and what that 1 represents. Treat this as regular 3-4-4-8 memory.
