I don't own the board. The QVL (qualified vendors list) states that RAM faster than DDR3-1600 will be downclocked to that frequency. The manual for the motherboards also lists memory multipliers through 8X, which (I suppose) means that the RAM can be set up to 800 MHz (1600 MHz equivalent, for DDR).

The manual also mentions that the CPU has to support this. The FX-6100 is supposed to support up through DDR3-1866, so the risk in getting DDR3-1600 (PC 12800) is small. At worst, you'd be stuck at 1333. There is basically no cost premium for DDR3-1600.
Yep mate I know my Sandy Bridge board with 16GB of 1600 in defaults to 1333 like that anyway for what it is worth on my Ivy it really doesn't seem to make much difference using 1333 (default) to 1866 which I set it at I suppose it really comes down to what the machine is being use for eh?:)
