worth upgrading from 1866 c9 to 2400c10+ for 4770k?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I am in the process of updating my system and diving into water cooling for the first time.
I had planned on leaving the mobo/cpu/memory alone for now but with the custom water cooling, I would like to see how far I can push things.

Current setup
Asus z87 deluxe
i4770k (stable at 4.5)
Corsair vengeance pro 1866c9 (9-10-9-27) version 3.24 Micron
980ti SLI
Antec HCP-1300 platinum

I am just gaming on this rig and goofing off with overclocking. I would like to see how far I can push the 4770k.

I have been able to hit 2133 10-12-12-31 and might be able to drop the timings a hair with more tweaking.

So my question is is it worth upgrading the memory to 2400 10-12-12-31 or better memory? I cant seem to find anything better.
Newegg has Gskill for $99 or corsair for $179

I dont mind spending a couple hundred on memory but since my next rig will likely be ddr4, I dont want to "throw money away"

Please share thoughts, opinions and smart @$$ remarks!

Cheers

The difference between 2133 c10 and 2400 is going to be negligible. Stick with what you have IMO, spend it elsewhere.

How are you judging any performance improvements with memory, and timing, differences?

Good question. The only non synthetic difference I can perceive is slightly shorter loading times of commonly used programs.

I've been told SuperPI is a reliable tool to measure sub-system performance like timings, Ram MHz., etc.

I would first see how far you can Overclock your current RAM if you are into that.

These days Motherboards have memory profiles you can try out to make it easier, wouldnt be surprised if your current kut can do 2133 c10 or 2400 c11/c12

Looking at this http://www.overclock.net/t/1487162/an-independent-study-does-the-speed-of-ram-directly-affect-fps-during-high-cpu-overhead-scenarios when gaming ram can make a difference.

If its worth the price you have to pay to upgrade ram is up to you. (If you sell current and buy new, the difference you have to pay probably isnt that big)
