From my understanding the lower the CL number the faster, sourced from here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAS_latency) or at least that's what I got from the article :2cents:

so its better because its cl is less than the other one that i chose?

Yea but the real world difference will be Tiny in most apps and nothing in games, bearly worth discussing unless you are perhaps concerned about Syntetic memory benchmarks.

Lower CL is always better. Usually in benchmarks only, but sometimes in games you can notice a couple of FPS increase with a lower CL.

I knew there would be arguments for and against which is why I posted the link from where I got the info from

There was an article from I think Tomshardware where a CL9 1600 was beaten by a CL7 1333 I think. Go look it up.

Youll find at VERY low res maybe but still doubt a few FPS, youll have to post that one.

Keep in mind most high end games the GPU is the bottleneck, so slightly faster ram latency is not going to do anything at higher resolutions, its much the same as CPU gaming benchmarks. I personally have had a good play with ram latency and know its a tiny consideration.
