Well, nothing really. Since IIRC 90% of all Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs can't run RAM at that speed.
Anyway to answer your question in case it would work.
- Lower access times
- More memory bandwidth for programs to use
It could speed up program loading and / or accessing of data, like for instance a tab in your webbrowser.
It could also increase FPS in some games by say... less than 1%. Really, past 2,133 Mhz. The differences become very small.Edited by MoGTy - 3/17/13 at 6:04am
