memory settings

is it better to run my memory (ddr3 - 1866) at 2160 with 10,11,10 or at 1600 with 8,8,8 ?

Other than in a benchmark, you probably will not notice any diffrence.

Test at both speeds and choose the setting that the system seems most happy with.

I would just go with the 1600mhz myself. Less stress on the memory controller.

I concur with the 1600 thought... I run my ram at a lower speed with tighter timings as well.
