    Ok. I need educating. Those timings are awful, right? But the speed 6600 is great, right? Is there a definitive guide to what’s good and what’s not? RAM is quite confusing!

    Also I was reading that my 5950X didn’t like anything over 3600 … is that right?

    I've been wondering this. Is DDR5 c36 compared to DDR3 c9 (3x speed, but 4x latency) better for everything, or mainly certain things and by how much in real-world usage terms, not just theoretical possible max bandwidth?

    I assume the answer is "everything" but would be interested to know what the effect of the different ratings is and how they stack.

    I *THINK* this is how it works DDR4 3200 MT/s CL16 = DDR5 6400 MT/s CL32.
    But at double transfer rate, even though you find data in similar amount of time, you can stream twice amount of data within the same time frame.

    So despite double transfer rate, overall gain is less than double, it will depend on architecture optimisations.
