Hello,

I want to know what DDR3 2000Mhz (PC3 16000) ram and faster will work for my system. I would like to run 16gb or more of this kind. :bounce:

Why do you need RAM of 2000mhz or more? Having high frequency ram doesn't have much uses, although it greatly benefits AMD's APU's but you stated you have intel so...
Also, higher frequency ram has higher latencies.

Just buy 1600mhz or 1866mhz ram and then spent the save money on a cpu cooler (or a better gpu or w/e) so you can overclock your cpu more and get overall better performance. Profit.
