Lol, my bad. Jumped right into fan-boy mode. I thought you were saying that MB would not clock the memory higher than 1866. In order to successfully overclock you memory on this motherboard, you need to scale the hyper transport with it. At least, that is what I have found to be most successful. Once again, my bad.
But still, he paid for higher quality ram, and it is being underclocked by the mobo. Shouldn't it at least be getting 1866mhz?
Indeed. You can leave all the timings and voltages on auto, and should scale to 1866 no problem.
Ahh, that would probably fix it.
