How does Overclocking Ram Affect My Performance?

Hello, i'm CrazyKilla

I was wondering, if i overclocked my ram from 1333Mhz to Something above (1600, 2400...) How would it affect the performance of my pc? The CPU Takes care of loading stuff and GPU takes care of graphical tasks, what would this do?

It would give you "slightly" better benchmarks... not really worth it for day to day use.

agreed, at the moment (and with your rig anyway), overclocking RAM is mainly for bragging about it.

It does make some difference if you are using an integrated GPU, but since you have a dedicated GPU that's irrelevant.
