Hi guys,
I need some help getting my RAM up to its best speed.

My specs are:
MSI 970 Gaming mobo
WD Blue 500gb SSD (OS, apps, programs) + PNY CS900 240gb SSD (media)
AMD FX 8350 CPU (OC'd to 4.3ghz)
AMD RX 560 GPU
*PNY Anarchy XLR8 DDR3 16gb (2x8gb) 1866mhz RAM* (has XMP support)

In BIOS, there are two XMP profiles to pick from--one at 1600mhz, one at 1866mhz.
After enabling the 1866mhz XMP profile, my userbenchmark score for my RAM went way down and I think all of the DRAM timings/CLK's/etc changed for the worse.

Can anyone help provide the correct DRAM timings to manually enter in BIOS after enabling XMP at 1866mhz? And will my CPU base speed of 4.3ghz restrict possible DRAM timings? If so, what CPU base speed and DRAM timings with this setup will yield optimal results?

PS: This is a workstation build used mainly for running multiple different financial programs simultaneously on multiple monitors, although i do surf the web, stream videos, and occasionally play games.
