To be fair, going from 6 gigs of RAM to 14 gigs won't show any noticeable performance improvement in the vast majority of games. You only need that much memory if you do a lot of 3D modeling, video editing, etc. Replacing your regular HD with a SSD would actually show a greater performance improvement (in terms of load times mainly).

This pretty much is it. The only way you're going to see an increase as well with memory, is by tweaking and adjusting timings(cas, ras and so on) and by screwing with the timing clocks. And you're only going squeeze so much out of it anyway. We're pretty close to the end of the line for the current DDR3 standard for the desktop game, so what most people have a 3% difference isn't noticeable, hell a 5% difference isn't noticeable.
