    Memory Jargon

    I'm not an overclocker.
    What is CL or cache latency?
    Also, i've heard of someone state the performance of his memory this way :

    cas-2@150mhz

    Any idea wat that is?

    Just found this link: Memory Explained

    I'm sure there are other members here who can explain this really well if you want to get down to specifics.

    cl is cas latency, the lower the faster

    when someone sets cas2@150 they mean that the ram is cas2 [fast] and the front-side bus [fsb] is running at 150mhz, rather than the usual 100 or 133, and most likely indicates an overclocked system with high fsb and good quality ram
