Current overclock:
i7-8700K @5.00 GHz all 6 cores
Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB @4.00 GHz

New overclock:
i7-8700K @5.10 GHz all 6 cores
Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB @3.20 GHz

Depends on what you are doing. You probably won't notice much difference either way.
I would say, for general overall use, the 800Mhz memory speed increase will serve you better than a 100Mhz CPU increase.

I honestly thought as much. The CPU is stable at 1.330v at 5.1 per Prime95, cinebench and my main titles. But to get a stable overclock at low voltage, it required lower ram speeds.

Guess it doesn't really matter? lol
