Dual Channel memory vs Quad (4930k)

I'm quite new to CFD and hardware, and I've been lurking around a bit on here and what I can gather is that memory is often more important than the processor (depending on if it can handle dual or quad channel).
So I have a 4930k and dual channel 1600MHz ram.
Can anyone give me an idea of performance increase if I moved to say 2400MHz quad channel ram?
Assuming I sell my current ram it would cost around £80 to make the upgrade.
Thanks in advance!

As ever this is going to depend on a lot of factors, such as software and problem size, but chances are good that you will see a doubling of performance. A 4930K with only two DIMMS was never a good idea.
