So, in my rig, before it had motherboard problems, the specs looked like this:
5960x CPU @3.0GHZ
H105 Corsair Cooler
32 GB 2133MHz DDR4 Crucial RAM
MSI Gaming 7 X99S Motherboard
2x NVIDIA GTX 970s
256 GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD (Boot, Program Drive) (SATA III)
1TB GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD (Media (Source Footage), Media Cache, Preview Files, Export Drive) (SATA III)
Thermaltake 1000W Gold PSU
Once that motherboard died for no obvious reason, the specs changed a little. Everything stayed the same except for the motherboard and the RAM:
ASUS X99 Deluxe USB 3.1 Motherboard
64GB 2666MHz DDR4 Corsair Vengeance RAM.
Now, from everybody who has every used After Effects, they always say that 64GB is going to be significantly better than 32GB; I understand that. However, what I'm interested about is the following:
So, basically, are either of the two things I mentioned above going to have any difference? I know that 64GB will, but what about the Frequency or Cas Latency? I do not have my machine back yet so I have been unable to test these things for myself.

Well - huh? I fail to see the relevance at all. There could be any number of other latency-inducing conditions and of course none of this matters in any way for actual processing. You are talking about fractions of nanoseconds here and would you even notice as you scrub the timeline?
Many benchmarks have shown little effect of increased RAM speed and better latency. Probably because of CPU caches and such. Money is better spend on faster SSDs for example.
