D800: different noise mechanisms


Having shot my D800 (in RAW)  I wonder if somebody can elaborate about the resulting overall noise in the following night/low light exposure alternatives (assume all exposure sets use the same F=5.6 aperture):

  • Shutter = 240 seconds  ISO=100
  • Shutter =30 seconds  ISO=800
  • Shutter= 8 seconds  ISO=3200
  • 8 multiple exposures each 30 seconds/ ISO 100
  • 8 multiple exposures each 8 seconds/ ISO 400

Besides, is there a difference in overall noise if I combine those in-camera vs. during post-processing ?
