So I was pretty disappointed with MSI there lieing about it becuz no AMD mobo can get to 2000 ram right now!!
It's not the RAM or motherboard. The AMD CPU's won't take speeds over about 1850~, I've maxed out @ 1824, and not too many have gotten beyond that.
The IMC (internal memory controller) on the CPU's are limited to 1600 for C3's, anything higher is an overclock. On the C2's, 1333 is the top supported speed, anything over that is an overclock.

Your NB is stable @ 2828 with only 1.24v CPU-NB? Jeez, I gotta run 1.432v for 2800, and I need 1.525v for 4Ghz. My chip is poop!
The funny thing is, when I first got this chip, I got 4040 to run @ 1.495v stable, as mentioned above, now it wants more volts for less speed.
