My System Specs

Default Ram Latency and amount questions.

Okay, I found that the people in this forum seem to know what they were talking about.
I took the time to write an organized post about my question. I proceeded to press post and be alerted that I have been logged out. So this is the SECOND time I've had to write this.

Okay, So I'm building a new Workstation/Gaming rig, Main specs:

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H
i7-3770k
GTX 680 2GB

I'll be doing a LOT of heavy gaming/multitasking.
A ton of heavy video editing/rendering in 1080p (And occasionally higher than 1080p)
Constant heavy multitasking.

What difference does CAS Latency make for this (Tight C9 vs Loose C9 vs tight C10)?
And I should be able to run 32GB of 1600Mhz C9 (9-9-9-24) RAM on this Motherboard/CPU, Right? (I don't want to buy 32GB of RAM that I can't use to full potential.)

I've been looking at Corsair RAM (They're the only brand I really trust for RAM, But I am open to recommendations)

Dominator Platinum 32GB 4x8GB (1600Mhz, 9-9-9-24 CAS)
Dominator Platinum 16GB 4x4GB (1866Mhz, 9-10-9-27 CAS)
Dominator 32GB 4x8GB (1600Mhz, 10-10-10-27 CAS)
Vengeance 32GB 4x8GB (1600Mhz, 9-9-9-24 CAS, And then the same model but 10-10-10-27 CAS)
--Edit As you might realize I'm trying to stick with a white/black/silver/gold colour theme, So if possible that's the colour scheme of RAM I would like to get--

I want to get 32GB if possible, I just want to make sure I'll be able to use the kit to it's full potential.

Thanks for any help and insight, and thanks for any RAM kit suggestions!
As I said I'm open to any 32GB kit as long as it's definitely good.

Sorry for being a bit disorganized, this is the second time I've had to write this post, as I've said.
