Btw I don't think you will see that big a difference between 1600 and 1300, I did whack a friends higher speed RAM in my board when I purchased the kit and it was no different gaming wise, so I think it will depend more on what you are doing.

Btw I would watch your temps carefully, you have some pretty warm kit there, and thats quite a small case to fit it in

Welcome to overclock.net!

Thank you for your reply
and that brings up one question in my mind. I want to see if my ram is faulty for any reason, it is not running at it's rated spec so if there's anything wrong with it, I can just rma and get a new set or I can return these and buy another set. The temp wise, I tried couple things with fans by increasing their speed up, i increased the back exhaust fan speed so it can keep up with the HSF CFM and that has dropped couple of Celsius. But anything other than that, I saw no results changing but the noise level gone up so i reduced intake fans and top exhaust fan to low again

For comparison im running about 46/43 idle about 72-73 full load at 3.8 with 1.55 vcore. But it depends on ambients since I have a wall AC in here.

Also I have the 92mm Vendetta.

Would I see much difference between 3.2 and 3.8 in gaming performance wise? If yes, then I should maunt the cooler again and try to squeeze more juice out of it lol. BTW my room temp is really at room temp around 60F.

Yes you definetely do. In games such as GTAIV it makes a pretty good difference. Even at 3.8 the my card is still about 95-98 gpu usage, higher frequency is still beneficial.

Make sure when you apply the paste you get as uniform and thin line on each pipe. I find it works good if you hold it down flat apply good pressure with your thumb and sort of drag it across. You gotta get the hang of it I guess.
