Default "Tested Latency" or "SPD Latency" ??

I want to enter my timings manually for my CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1333C9.

The specs on the website list two different sets of timings for these modules:
"Tested Latency" 9-9-9-24
"SPD Latency" 7-7-7-20

What's the difference between "Tested" and "SPD" latency and can I safely use either set of timings?

Intel i7 930
Asus Sabertooth X58
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

SPD latency probably isn't correct since they're spec'd at C9. Use the tested latency.
No, I don't work for Corsair need to flow like a river...
