No, CL18 is not bad! If you ran those two memories in separate tests while gaming I would be extremely surprised if you would notice any difference. You might see a tiny difference if running benchmark tests.Alright cheers, so CL18 is bad then? Will there be a significant performance boost with CL16 3600 vs CL18 3600. And also will CL18 stutter. Also what’s Bdie mean?
