IN the middle of a system upgrade and want to put in 32gb of DDR3 Ram.

My choices are
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 2400ghz
Tested Latency: 10-12-12-31
SPD Latency: 9-9-9-24
I found where the Corsair Vengeance was stable overclocked to 2556mhz

or
PNY Anarchy 2666
Couldn't find the timings but they say
It's CL12 Ram

What I'm hearing about Ram is that Latency is more important than speed.
so if I'm reading it right the lower latency of 9 or 10 on the Corsair Vs the 12 on the PNY Anarchy make
the Corsair a better performer.

The PNY will cost me $$60.00 total more for 32gb.


Any Opinions

Actually I became impatient and found the answer to my question.

I called PNY and believe it or not quickly reached an American Support Guy he gave me the timings of the 2666 Ram as
12-13-13-35

I then told him that I was comparing it to Corsair 2400 Ram with timings of
Tested Latency: 10-12-12-31
SPD Latency: 9-9-9-24

I asked his opinion and he said the other Ram is better.

Thank you for that Link, my only problem is that ASROCKs are very finicky MB and I once had a
memory incompatibility with G.Skill on a different ASROCK but Corsair worked. Also the Latency on the Corsair is lower.

I am going to install my memory with my MB an CPU upgrade today and the store has two choices in High performance Ram.
The Anarchy is $60.00 more expensive and before spending that money I wanted to make sure that it really is better.

Turns out it's not worth the extra $60.00
