Ram warming up like crazy the CPU is doing it,it will go up to like 65 - 66c while gaming it used to only go up to like 45 - 50c.

 Possible the GPU waste heat is being drawn into the RAM area?  One way to test is to run a CPU/RAM or RAM only test.  It doesn't matter much what you use.  If there was a physical problem with the RAM, it will hit 80C very quickly.  If it rides along at lower than game temps, you know this is a case heat management issue.

will I see any difference in performance with the faster memory? also as you can see its CL18 and the current memory is CL16 will there be a performance hit cause of it being CL18?

While two drop 2 rungs in CAS Latency, you go up +400 in frequency.  In nearly all cases that is a small advantage for the higher frequency set --- at least in benchmarks.  It is unlikely you will be able to notice any difference at all in most games, except some of the turn-based strategy games that throw a ton of things in there on each round.
