I have 2 sets of Samsung Wonder Ram and looking for the best possible settings. They clock great from 1600mhz to 2400mhz and trying to find out which would be the best to run them at.

I can run them at the following speeds and timings. I can use all 4 sticks @ 1600mhz, but the IMC hates all 4 of them @ 1866mhz or higher.

CL7 @ 1600mhz
CL8 @ 1866mhz
CL9 @ 2133mhz
CL10 @ 2400mhz

I have had them up over 2500mhz, but didn't like how much voltage I had to pump into them to keep them stable.

Which would be the best to run them at in my system listed below?

Thanks

PS: I have searched and read through a lot of threads on timings and speed, but still not finding what I'm looking for.

To make it simple:
1000mhz cl5=2000mhz cl10

CL is the number of cycles before the memory responds. Having a high frequency means that more cycles are done in a second. A very easy and fast method to check the performance, is to divide frequency by latency.
1600/7=228
1866/8=233
2133/9=237
2400/10=240

Hope it helps

The higher the number, the higher the performance
