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?

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?

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. | Report abuse TheBigTroll Overclocking Expert July 5, 2012 12:14:43 PM anyone have a pair of snipers? im gonna try tuning the cas latency to 9-9-9-24 from 9-10-9-28 | Report abuse TheBigTroll Overclocking Expert July 5, 2012 12:15:04 PM Best answer selected by TheBigTroll. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Worth it?> Related ressources: ForumSapphire Vapor X 7970 ghz worth returning HIS IceQ X2 7970 ghz?
