TZ77XE4 not working w/ four RAM modules at 1866Mhz

My mobo is bio* TZ77XE4. I have four modules of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220562 at 1.65V. I already know from the review that this mobo is the most lacking at memory overclocking for all four modules. I got what I paid for. The mobo only allows up to 1600 MHz at auto voltage settings for four modules. I get Memtest86 errors at multiplier 18 or 18.67 at all possible range of DRAM voltages for all four modules (for both manual and XMP). What other settings can I change for it to work w/ 18 or 18.67 mulitpliers?

    Is it really that big of a deal?

    What is it that this will actually affect?

    What value do you expect to get from the extra 266 mhz?

    I heard that low memory speeds bottlenecks especially the IB CPU's. I seem to confirm this on AIDA64 bechmarks when I had two modules w/ 1866.
  3. In RAM specific tests, you often see a difference between various RAM speeds.

    In real world applications, like games for instance, there is not usually even 1 FPS gain from faster RAM.

    Said in another way, RAM is almost never the bottleneck. The only way you would experience a FPS gain would be if RAM were the bottleneck and it isn't.

    Ram speed IS the bottleneck when you are doing things like Winzip that work almost completely within RAM, but that is about it. Even then the difference of 800 mhz is single digits %.
