So if I understand correctly, the benefits of CL14 are most noticeable in non-gaming related computer task? Can you provide an example of some programs that would benefit perceivably from CL14 RAM as opposed to CL16? Sorry for asking all of these questions, I just want to make sure that I understand what I am, and am not buying.
Lower CL only shows up in ultra-fast tasks. High FPS Gaming, most of the Adobe Stack and a few other places.
The place it shows up is the "CS:GO Optimized Builds". And that's only true because of *problems* with the Programs that you're using Hardware to work through. If you're trying to maintain 400+ FPS in CS:GO, the bottlenecks are anything that adds any latency, even really little amounts here and there.
A look at memory scaling with standard timings. There's actually a lot of benefit to "tuning" sub-timings, but that's a discussion for another time.
