What about 2000? That's what I have them clocked to currently.

I think at 2000Mhz it won't be as easy. It's been done, but for the majority of people it probably can't really

I could settle for 1866, I guess.

Don't trick yourself with high numbers that don't necessarily perform.

Lower timings usually equal the performance output of high speed on AMD (unlike Intel which normally only responds well to high speed)

2x4GB.

Less stress on the IMC.

It's not just the numbers. I actually notice a difference. Benchmarks aren't everything.

I can't overclock to 5.5 with 4 sticks in. That's the only difference i've noticed.
