memory is cheap. no one can tell you if its worth it without a.price. if you're worried about clearance get ram with low profile heat spreaders

Not much. Ram bandwidth with modern processors is quite high to begin.

I would suggest sticking with what you have. Maybe save for something better? A new gpu? An SSD?

IMO spending 40 bucks on slightly higher clocked ram would be a waste, for around 1-2% difference.

Here is an old review but still sufficient:

I should have asked this in the first place, but are you trying to add more ram, or do you just want the extra "speed"? Also what set up do you have? Intel, or AMD based?

there was no real point of getting the 1333mhz and the 1600mhz ram when the 1866 was cheaper

Ok makes sense. I thought you just wanted to go from 1600->1866 RAM. But since it's a new build, go for it.

I looked up the compatibility with the Hyper 212 + Sniper and it should be good to go.

Nice kit btw.
