12600K difference between 3200 Mhz CL16 and 3600 Mhz memory CL18?

 Share

I have just upgraded to a 12600 K and stuck with DDR4. My existing kits are 3200 MHz CL16 Corsair Vengeance LPX (4x8GB).  Would an upgrade to 3600 Mhz CL18 (2x16 GB) make a noticeable difference in games?

No.

You're supposed to say yes to justify my (pointless) upgrade.

Both kits have the same total latency, so the 3600MHz kit would just have a little more bandwidth. There might be some benefit in certain games, but it would be relatively minute overall, and almost certainly not worth the cost to upgrade. At least if you have a dedicated GPU, games tend to not be affected much by system RAM, anyways. With an iGPU, it matters more, but even then it probably wouldn't make a ton of difference.

Why not just see what you can OC that RAM to? Might hit 3600 mts anyways.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.
