I think the increased latency might actually not be worth the extra mhz, at least up until a point. When I get home ill runs some benchs on my 470 too see for sure when I get home.
Unless it's a massive difference in latency ram benefits more from clock speed than timings and actually latency decreases as speed increases even with looser timings (want always the case at lower speeds in the past)
Latency in NS is (cas/real clock)*1000
I.E 1866mhz ram is always slower than 2600mhz ram (unless 2600mhz had obnoxious timings)
In short, more mhz always worth it
My cas 9 1600 kit can do 2400 cas 13 and the latency improved along with bandwidthEdited by Echoa - 8/29/16 at 2:27am
