I have three types of RAM in mind. If you all could give me some opinions on which would serve me best and WHY I would appreciate it.

1866MHz 8-9-9-24 1.6V G Skill Trident 2x8GB

2133MHz 9-11-11-31 1.6V G Skill Trident 2x8GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

2400MHz 10-12-12-31 1.65V G Skill Trident 2x8GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The CPU will be overclocked to around 4.6 - 4.8GHz

Just get cheap 1600mhz memory, you will be happy with it because it saved you $$$ :D

if your gaming any of them your not going to notice any difference between them. if its something ram intensive then go with the 2400mhz it will like the speed.

1866 is native RAM speed for the AM3+ FX series CPUs.

For gaming, you really don't need anything faster.

BUT if you GOTTA have faster...try AMD 2133 performance ram with the FX series. Several reviews indicating good results.

With the 8350 and 1866, prob 1866 will be the best, not sure the 8350 can carry 16GB at 2133, have seen very few of them that could

Does anybody know what the max safe voltage is for these modules?

I'd keep them to 1.7 or under- haven't had to take any set higher than that for for a 1 or even 2 step OC, and that was 1866-2400

Alright. Thank you. Just to be clear when you talk about a "1 or even 2 step OC" are you talking about timings (Cas Latency ect.) or speed (MHz)?

Combo generally - i.e most go to OC from say a set of 1866 at 8-8-8-24 to 2133, a good starting point is 9-9-9-27 at the same voltage - if no joy ease DRAM voltage up a bit (and maybe MC (memory controller) voltage), when stable can then try maybe dropping CL (the 1st shown timing) to like 8-9-9-27 - it's all a matter of experimentation
