    the annoying bit most of all is i have 3 - 2gb ddr3 which state 2000mhz but i know that aint possible so i put volts to 1.65v and put the memory as 1600 - 9-9-9-24 but i can not go higher

    Is that an older X58 triple channel set you are using?

    Pull out third memory stick, leave the DRAM voltage at 1.65 volts, and try to set 1866. To reach 2000, you may need to increase bus frequency.

    I would leave it 1600Mhz if you are not OCing the CPU

    FX has native support for 1866, so if the memory supports this rate, it is more efficient. On the other CPU, I fully agree, I would also prefer 1600 with less latency.
