1600MHz @ 8-8-8-24 or 1833Mhz @ 9-9-9-24  with 1.5V
and is it healthy to be at these settings 24/7?
I have: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H | CPU: Intel i7-3770K @4.3Ghz stock volt | RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB 1600MHz LP 1.35V

real-world or theoretical?

 

hmm I thought someone a while ago posted a chart with real-world difference which was pratically zero. Theoretical my understanding is 1 higher tim is the same as 1 lower at a speed step down. eg, 1600 CL8 vs 1866 CL9

According to this artical there is 1-7 frames difference between the two.

1-7 frames is not noticeable unless your system is already struggling to run over 30FPS on games, which from your specs it's not.

+1 also higher memory allows for high CPU overclock (to a point) but with everything basically needing a multiplyer it doesn't matter much anymore unless 100mhz is something you need.

You will see a difference in 3dmark benches, but you won't gain much in real world applications. I wouldn't bother with it.

I still like the sport and the benefit. small as it is. My question is- is it bad for the memory to work like this 24/7?

In my testing at higher resolutions with settings we use higher memory speeds rarely add any real world benefit to gaming.

Memory and CPU clocks aren't linked in the past few generations of CPUs from AMD or Intel AFAIK.

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.
