2000mhz ram asus rampage III extreme

Just curious if anyone has successfully put 2000MHz ram in an Asus Rampage III extreme, and how tricky the timing/bios settings were. The board is only rated at 1600, with 2000 as an O.C. option. I'm thinking about putting OCZ reaper 2000 3x2 in this board. Just wanting to make sure it will work.

Sorry about the double post. I spoke with Asus and they said it should work, although it may need to be tweaked, but to contact OCZ for the settings. OCZ - not quite so easy to get in touch with... Thus the post.

Response from OCZ - if this helps anyone else out.

2000 MHz RAM will work in a board rated at 1600. It will just not run at full potential. The motherboard is the limiting factor, and thus (without O.C.), it will only run at 1600 (duh) - but if anyone else is wondering, it IS plug and play. And with the Asus board's ability to O.C. the ram, it is possible to get the ram to 2000 if not 2200.
