I am going to purchase a motherboard that supports up to DDR3 2400(O.C.). I have seen things saying that overclocking RAM is not worth it. Is it worth it to buy memory that is rated for DDR3 2400 and overclock it or should I just buy DDR3 1600 (the highest non-overclocked memory rating that the motherboard supports)?
Are there noticeable performance gains when you overclock to DDR3 2400? (Note that I have already gone for more obvious performance gains such as using an SSD).
The use case for this machine will be gaming and programming.
