    Which would give you a better performacne boost, a low memory cas latency of say 2, or overclocking your cpu's clock speed and a lower cas of say 3?

    Your question makes no sense. Please rephrase.

    -edit-

    Ok thats better.

    Your cpu being overclocked will give you the biggest tangible difference.

    The lower the timings/latency on the memory, the better the performance coupled with the oc but since you are going out of spec, you will have an increased liklihood of system instability.
