Going for high frequency over timings may give you the best results. Leaving memory stock is fine and will help you sleep at night. I would go 8-16GB with the highest frequency you can find at a reasonable cost. 2400MHZ isnt that much more expensive in 8gb flavor.

16gb is a little pricey

I would have to double check, but I believe my motherboard only allows a max of 2200MHz RAM..

Not CPU VCore Voltage, but VCCIO/VCCSA Voltage (memory controller). Generally up to DDR3-2133 your motherboard can automatically take care of it (thank ASUS), but anything above may require manual voltage. At DDR3-2133, the VCCIO/VCCSA will be automatically higher, which is why you will notice CPU temp is higher than when the memory is at DDR3-1600. With your hardware, you should have no problem with 4.7GHz, DDR3-2133, as long as you have a good CPU cooler.

I have basically the same system at the same specs except memory at DDR3-2228.

The Sandybridge CPUs are limited to DDR3-2133 memory multiplier, so anything above is BCLK overclocking. Since BCLK OC is limited with these CPUs, DDR3-2400+ is not beneficial unless you plan to purchase them for the chips and use them at lower frequency/timings.

Cheers
