The RAM speeds, according to memtest was unchanged even though for the switch I ran both sets at 1600 even tightening timings for the AMD rig.
Apparently the RAM frequency has little or no effect on how fast it runs in the machine. It does show a large difference with winsat mem though.
The AMD system ran about 15,100 both times but the Intel dropped from 28,500 to 22,100 with the 1866 RAM.

Here are the memtest pics, the top ones are after the switch, the lowers are the same as in the OP.

I just thought comparing the same would have been more apropriate :P

Lols @ Steve not noticing who made the post, Tut Tut!
Yes, you're right. But in my defence, he changed his avatar. What I have found strange is my Maximus board. I really haven't tried overclocking it, but I can put almost any speed or timings in and it runs fine, and passes memtest. So far, everything I have put in just runs fine. It's mostly been underclocking, but I have lowered the timings considerably and it runs no matter what I put in. I have had Intel boards before that would never do that. Maybe I'll play with it a little more when I put it back together.
They're good boards aren't they. I know a couple of peeps that have them and are well happy with them.

I'd like to know what memtest shows for your machines Steve and Ryan.

Here is a picture of Memtest running on my Sabertooth mobo.

EDIT: Here is a winsat test to go with it...

I'll show you mine whenever I put the machine back together. But, if it will help, this is winsat with 2133 on the same Z68 board you have running a 3570K.

Here's a winsat for now chap. I'll run memtest shortly once i've woken up a tad

Edit:Sorry for the crappy pic but the camera on my phone is pretty poor.

Memtest shows my timing's as 4-5-5-15 for some reason

Thanks for your input guys! That is odd on your memtest timing reading Ryan. Steve suggested that maybe memtest is not setup to read the newest CPU and RAM correctly. I don't think it's been updated for 2-3 years.
