RAM Timings on G.Skill Sniper

I bought myself and 8GB memory kit (2x4GB) from G.Skill about a year ago.
The advertised CL and Clock speed were 9Clocks and 1600Mhz, but when I
got the memory, it refused to run at those settings, and pumped the CL up
to 11.

No I have it at 8 and 1333Mhz running fine, but I'm wondering if the timings
8-8-8-24 are actually any faster than 9-9-9-24, because as I understand
the 24 is the number of clock cycles until the next read/write action, so
wouldn't the new settings result in the same performance?

Did you manually input settings in BIOS? It should have no problem at the rated specifications. The memory is above standard, so manual settings are necessary, otherwise it may default to 11-11-11, which is the standard.

DDR3-1333 8-8-8-24 can have similar performance to DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24

Stress for the memory controller is less, so it is good for many lower end AMD CPU users wanting performance without making CPU unstable.

Thank you
