I am planning to try to run my memory on full speed but I was wondering informative what does this value of memory latency (red cirle) affect?



Does it affect smoothness (I think I read that) of game or just higher fps?
 
Memory latency affects how quickly a memory access is serviced (i.e. from the initial time of the CPU's memory access request to when the result is returned to the CPU). Lower latency means the memory is more responsive.

Thank you both for answer. I read all and far as I understood it only effect perfomance. For game smoothness I was thinking about game feel (example 60 vs 75hz), fluidness. Like i said some guy wrote that with lower latency game will feel more fluid rather than at same fps with higher latency. So he is wrong?
