I'm upgrading to a 4670k. Right now im using this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231461 G.Skill sniper low voltage. I havent ever taken the time to figure out exactly how to overclock since I had a 775. So MY question is is worth upgrading ram for this build?

I'd recommend upgrading it. The issue I've ran into with low voltage ram is some motherboards have issues with it, although it can be overclocked a bit more so it's really all up to you in the long run with it. If you stick with it just make sure the new motherboard will be compatible.

Well if it works then it works, give it a shot.
(I have that exact same kit btw, worked fine in my P55 board and Z77)

Haswell can actually take advantage higher frequency kits though, so either try and OC them or pickup a kit of 2133-2400MHz if you want.
The low-volt kits usually have some nice headroom so I'd think getting 1866 out of that kit should be easy enough, going to try the same myself.

These got me to 4.7 pretty easy just by raising the multi.
