By Luke212From memory, Kingston have always rated their HyperX BH/CH chips with a minimum of 2-2-2-6 for PC3200 (HyperX TCCD was 2-2-2-5 @ 400 though). For PC3500 with CH IC's they rate them at 2-3-3-7. It doesn't mean they wont run those timings, it just provides a slightly larger safety net for the manufacturer for guaranteed speeds/timings.
After all, OCZ did it with its VVX line where they were rated at 2.5-3-3-7 but some sets like mine, T_M's & Babyelfs etc could run happily 2-2-2-5 at up to 260mhz, some others maxed out at 235-240mhz @ 2-2-2-5. From OCZ's standpoint, they do not need to RMA the poor performing modules as they were not guarenteed for those speeds at those timings. A similar strategy is also used on Gold VX PC3200 vs PC4000 modules for nominal voltage @ standard rated speeds from factory, where the PC4000 is rated at 3.3v & PC3200 at 2.6v. Hope you get the drift of what I am trying to say.
I'd say speed binning the IC's arent done too strenuously on behalf of Kingston, so they are a bit conservative with their labelling of certain timings. Although I may be wrong on this.
