Great, Great, Great explanation! I've been Googling my **** off finding such simple/clear explanation. So thanks! :-)

So I basically have 2 options:
1. Run my 12GB RAM (CMP6GX3M3A1600C7 x 2) @ 1333Mhz or
2. Use XMP and OC @ 1600Mhz and find out if it runs stable?

Now, I do have an additional question about this, almost in every text I come across about this issue the following (exact) statement arises: "Due to Intel Spec Definition, X.M.P. Dimms and DDR3-1600 are supported for one Dimm per channel only." and I can't help myself wondering why this doesn't state "1600 or higher", I always read 1600Mhz specifically. Is there a specific reason for this? I would still be having the same problem if I had 1866Mhz memory, right?

RAM used to be the easy part of a system .
