whats the fastest ram an overclocked i7 could use. lets say 3.8-4gh does using 2000 9-9-9 ram give better performance that 1600 8-8-8 ram??

and does having faster ram make it easier to get a higher stable clock or is that just bs.

In benchmarks yes, in real world apps very little difference.

It gives you more options, if you are just OCing to 3.8-4.0 GHz it won't make a difference.
