I run 32GB on a Sabertooth and manually set my speeds to just over 1800mhz, but it will not boot at 1866Mhz. The speed difference is unnoticeable if it makes you feel better.

No, I am using only two slots (*2 8gb sticks). Am i able to get this to run 1866, or at least >1333, using only two slots? If so, how? Is there a newby guide on manually setting ram clocks? I have researched and examined my bios...there are so many clocks available..."DRAM settings" ect...Is there a simple how-to guide for my specific build?
