Help with changing memory settings for best performance

I just installed 2x4GB of Gskill Sniper DDR3-1866 memory to replace the 2x2GB Adata DDR3-1600 that came with the computer. I immediately noticed a higher latency in my online games. I've tried setting the timings to 9-9-9-24 at 1600 MHz and 1.5v as recommended but that didn't fix the issue. Any clues on how to get my latency back down by adjusting the memory?

Not sure if this is needed but my motherboard is GIGABYTE P55A-UD3.

RAM amount or speed won't make any difference when it comes to online gaming latency, the problem is either with your ISP or network card/driver.

^ This.

You just wasted money unless something was wrong with the RAM you had. There would be a less than 1% real world gain from going to DDR3 1866 from DDR3 1600.

A P55 board is fine to use with 1.5v and 1.65v RAM. It's Sandy and Ivy Bridge that need 1.5v. Set the timings and speed the RAM is rated for. Is DDR3 1866 even compatible with a P55 board?

I know this is marked as SOLVED, but perhaps you didn't mean "latency" the way it's supposed to be used?

I have a Gigabyte P55A-UD7 motherboard, so if you think you have an issue with performance caused by the new RAM feel free to open up a dialogue.

I was refering to the server's PING, is that what you meant OP?
