How much of noticeable difference would I see in upgrading my RAM?

I have Kingston Hyper X 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz.
I was looking at Kingston Hyper X 8GB DDR3 2400 MHz.
My motherboard and CPU will support the upgrade.

Thanks.

You will notice a difference when you run a memory benchmark. Other than that, little or no difference.

How much looser are the timings on that quick RAM?
