Lowering the tRD gives a nice boost to the memory subsystem:

Does this refer to tRCD? My cpu-z shows trcd and not tRD.
The tRCD is the 'row' to 'column' delay (DRAM is like a 2D array of rows & columns).

The tRD is the 'delay' that the chipset needs to move the data from the memory bus to the FSB. On the ASUS mobos, this is called 'performance level'.

Sorry for the big delay.
