You don't need more than 1600mhz.


Intel does not benefit much from higher memory from 1600 to 1866 cas 9, AMD Bulldozer/Piledriver does benefit from 1600 to 1866 low timings. If the prices are close than 1866 is the way to go.

I don't remember there being much of a benefit over 1600mhz with good timings unless your using an APU for AMD. Correct me if I'm wrong though.
