Toggle hover popup speed in Eclipse

I'm busy writing some Java code in Eclipse Mars (4.5) on Windows. When I run my mouse over some text (for which Eclipse has some documentation to show), the time delay between moving the mouse and the help box popping up is too short. This is making writing code difficult. In the attached image, I moved my mouse over the word "String" in the text and nearly instantly the box pops up.

Intelli or context help image

Is there any setting for the time Eclipse waits before popping up a box? Ideally I'd like this to be something like 1000ms, but it looks more like ~50ms (or

as-fast-as-possible
) to me.
