Default EVGA 5900SE which revision is better

I had to send my 5900SE rev 1 back to EVGA because I broke the cap off while doing the video card tango. Even though I broke it off and removed the original fan and installed water cooling they honored the warranty.

I was looking my RMA replacement and saw that the memory didn't have the gold heatsinks. I posted this in the EVGA forums and WShelley told me about the newer revision.

I wanted to know did the rev 1 have the faster hynix 2.5 or 2.2?

I don't plan on doing any overclocking or hardcore performance tweaks(if I keep telling myself that it will go I away, I can stop at anytime, really I can.) I was wondering because I had read that the cheaper components were used by all the manufactures at the end.

Actually 2.2 ns is faster. The lower the latency, the faster the memory.

Um... Yes that is correct but the context of my question was based on the rev 2 has the hynix 2.8.

I wanted to know did the rev 1 have the faster hynix (2.5 or 2.2)?

Thanks anyway
