Ddr3 1333mhz timings question

Hi guys
allthough ive been a keen pc enthusiast for nearly a decade ive not been a overclocker( done some basic stuff like increasing the fsb with no voltage adjustment ).. so when it comes to overclocking memory im pretty much a novice
anyway ive just seen a 8gb ddr2 kit (1333mhz ) namely the "Crucial 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz Ballistix Tactical Memory "( http://www.ebuyer.com/310971-crucial-8gb-ddr3-1333mhz-ballistix-tactical-memory-blt2cp4g3d1337dt1tx0ceu ) and this has 7-7-7-24 timings were as most of the other 1333mhz modules have 9-9-9-24 timings
so what would the difference be between the 7-7-7-24 modules and the 9-9-9-24 modules... would there be better performance with the crucial Ballistix Tactical Memory with the better timings compared to the more common 9-9-9-24 timings
they are advertised on the crucial website as "gaming memory"( http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=BLT2CP4G3D1337DT1TX0CEU ) ....
would these be a worthwhile purchase or are they designed for premium motherboards ... im using the gigabyte ga-h61ma-d2v ( http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4090#ov )

cheers guys

  1. Lower timings mean faster memory, but it always comes with a price premium.

    Would you notice the difference? No.

    They may not default to cas7, they may default to cas9, just make sure you set it up correctly in the bios according to the sticker on the dimms.
