Default CAS 2 vs. CAS 3 speed differences in RAM with Athlon 64?

After reading Toms hardware article on memory timings I stand corrected. It
appears to gain about 6% over CAS 3. However, 6 % performance gain is worth
a few extra bucks in my opinion. Also, most of the time, your only quoted
the CAS latency. What you find when you get the chip is that its not
3-2-2-5, but, 3-4-4-9. The ram I'm using is 2-2-2-5.

If you use a amd64, you should try 2-2-2-9 or 2-2-2-10.

AnandTech did a bunch of testing and seemed convinced of it.

I benchmarked my memory and sure enough, it ran better at -9.

Real testing is the only way to go.
