Which 256 MB PC2700 CL2.5 has better chance of doing 2.0-2-2-5?

I´m running my Crucial 512MB DDR333 sticks at 2.0-2-2-5, I guess 256MB sticks would do it aswell.

I wouldn´t bet my money on the Kingston going all the way, but if you´re satisfied with something like 2-3-3-7 go with the Kingston CL 2.5.

lookin for these one.
Lower latency means better performance, right?
I'm going for a KVR256MB DDR266 CAS2.5.

Same as mine.
Kingston Value RAM are very common.
Crucial and Corsair are very very rare.

I know Crucial doesn't. They time their modules conservatively. They make so much stuff for OEMs that they shoot for stability rather than performance. I've never had one that wouldn't run CL2 rock solid. I had some PC2100 modules that were pretty sweet overclockers. The PC2700 is less overclockable, but CL2 is no problem. I haven't tried the PC3200 that's rated at CL3, yet though.
