i have a biostar 880gz am3+ mobo that support up to 2000 mhz. i have a fx4100. im currently running 1 1600 mhz dim 4gb in size, althou it is recognized at 1333. if i buy 1866 ram will it show up at that speed? or does the fx4100 only support up to 1600 mhz or something? can someone give me a lesson here? i have a feeling if i were to buy 1866 ram spd would detect it at 1333

Well, your motherboard only supports 1333 as standard, if you want more, you have to overclock:

Support Dual Channel DDR3 800/1066/1333(supportted by CPU model)/-------1600(OC)/1866(OC) MHz --------
2 x DDR3 DIMM Memory Slot
Max. Supports up to 8GB Memory

It might be simple to overclock for your Mainboard, just go into BIOS and under Performance (6th upper tab) then DRAM timing configuration and in the first row select manual, then choose 1600.

Don't change any voltage or other configurations under this section, your RAM can support this frequency without need of additional power and there's no need for something else.
You can find your MoBo manual right here: http://www.biostar.com.tw/upload/Manual/A88PK-M3S%20&%2...

Should I mention you should press F4 (save & exit) after the change ?

ahhh thank you i didnt notice the standard for this mobo was 1333... i thought at 1866 it started for overclocking but its 1600 and 1866. didnt see that. yes everything works fine when i set it to 1600mhz, accept my CAS timings are 11-11-11 and 28 i belive.... not 9-9-9-24 like my ram should be

Details, my friend... 11-11, 9-9... close enough.

Good luck.

Just set your current RAM at 1600 and forget any foolishness about getting 1866 RAM.
You'll never see the difference.
