FWIW my testing shows almost no system performance gains with change in latency from 11-11-11-30 2T to 8-8-8-24 1T with DDR3 RAM. If your software can show some significant advantage great but the lower latencies on DDR3 seem to only show possible benefit in benchmark results.

The CMX12GX3M3A2000C9 should provide excellent performance and stability @ 1600 MHz. as long as your CPU is happy running RAM @ 1600 MHz. This will be a significant OC as the i7-920 officially only supports 1066 MHz. The increased frequency (50%), will show more system performance gain than lower latency IME.

PLEASE READ THE MEMORY UPGRADE GUIDE at the link below. It WILL answer many questions.

PC Overclocking is like the lottery:

There are many possible combinations but only a few that produce winning results. Nothing is guaranteed when it comes to overclocking. If you are able to tune your hardware to run beyond it's specified performance, then you got something for free.

Don't expect this to always happen.
