Cas 2.5 is faster than cas 3. We may have updated the sticks with lower timings or your board may just be reading them wrong off the sticks. If you have stability problems with 2.5-3-3-8 timings try manually setting them to 3-3-3-8

bknight - it looks like many people have had success tightening the timings on these sticks of ram. You should def up to the voltage to 2.7 and try to run 2.5-3-3-7 or possibly even 2-3-3-6.

Remember, with ram timings, you are measuring the ns delay, so lower is generally better =)
