    I'd go 1600-8-8-8, it'll probably be faster then the 1866-9-10-9, and stands a decent chance of doing 1866-9-9-9.

    +1, the 1600 8-8-8 kit is a win etheir way.
    This is not the signature you are looking for.

    Just an FYI. The way that I have seen a lot of bins work like this, it's usually the other way around. An 1866C9 kit has a MUCH greater chance of also running 1600C8 than the other way around. "IF" the 1600C8 kit could do 1866C9 on our tests, we'd bin it and sell it as an 1866C9, not a 1600C8. Of course, a tiny bump of DRAMv may solve all of this anyway.
