I also have Trident-X, the 2400C9 kit, and i also ran them 1866 8-9-9, but that is not considered VERY tight, not even tight. You would need CL7-7-7 , CL7-8-8 or maybe CL8-8-8 to call them that.
Nevertheless, I'm sure you find them ok, they are indeed good timings, my Trident-X work also fine at that speed.
However, please take some time and read relevant thread at XS:
Some specific results that i hope to convince you :

If you search over that thread you will find some more AMD results that will convince you.
I got Trident-X because i wanted to have them for Intel setup, running fine on AMD, sure, but the'll not get tight at the speeds the AMD's IMC can handle.
Crucials' Micron IC's cannot ofcourse reach the 2700+ frequency range in general, up to their limit though, they will have tighter timings than Hynix and Samsungs overall.
Samsungs and Hynix's on the other hand , can handle well high frequencies close to 2900-3000MHz , but in lower frequencies they can't have the timings that Micron's have.
In the end you'll see that my statement was not contradictory.
You may however wan't to try to reach these two results :1866 CL7-7-8-8-33 @ 1.635V
