Define large :P

I dont get a huge loss of performance running lower timings, but the only way to know is to try it....

I think agressive 5,2,2,2 wil lbe faster.

Run a couple of 3dmark tests to compare the two.

I would loop 3Dmarkse1 at aggressive timings for the night and see if it's still there in the morning - or prime95

I suspect difference from aggressive to optimal is the same as fast cpu command and normal on via chipsets. It should increase cpu bandwith quite a bit.
