Windows 7: What is faster and better for an FX8120: 1866 CL10 or 1600 CL9?

Thanks for your answers. Right now I'm Oc'ing my ram (32GB 1600 CL9) to 1866 10,11,10,27. Seems to work just fine, but as you said I do not see much of a difference. Maybe I'll just run it at default speed and squeeze a bit more out of the CPU.

Seems like most of all AMD caps out at 20,000 MB to about 21,000 the highest i seen and that is with a slight ram oc and still you can ring it up to 1866 it will be bottlenecked at 20,000 if your able to get it that high

I'm at 20,600 at 1866 vs 18,500 at 1600.

Even if you could get the benefit of the 1866 full capability, real world use you wouldn't notice anyway. Although there are some instances where it makes a difference, by overall it will not and those instances are things not everyone will do anyway.

I'd just run at 1600 if I were in your shoes.

Thank you Wishmaster.
I'll follow your advice, at least for a while.
I'm trying ti get some more out of my cpu, so I'll set RAM to default settings to avoid compounded staibility issues.
Thanks again.
