The Effect Of Crank Length On Performance

I have both 165mm and 170mm cranks and have used both at different times in my riding at the velodrome. I used to feel that the 170 allowed me to turn a larger gear and the 165 cranks allowed for more cadence. I had no research at all to back my opinion up with, I think it was something told to me a long time ago. Is there any truth to those two beliefs?
