I'm trying to find the perfect 8gb (2x4) memory with head room for overclocking. Because I orignally had a corsair vengence 1600 cas 8 1.5v and when I OC the 2600k to 4.4 or 4.6 and put the memory at its default profile 1 8x timing it would not start until I put it back to stock cas9 then it would start perfectly So I sent it back rma to newegg.. PLEASE HELP ME FIND A GOOD 2X4 8GB MEMORY DON'T MATTER WHAT SPEED AS LONG AS IT'S 2X4 8GB WITH ALLOT OF HEAD ROOM FOR OVERCLOCKING. MY SETUP IS BELOW IN the SIGNATURE. "DDR3 2133(OC)/1866(OC)/1600/1333/1066"

Keep in mind, that with any memory, in order to get the ram to overclock, your going to have to do some CPU overclocking, at least of the FSB to get the ram to run at the higher speeds, and even then sometimes it just cant be done with some combinations, and its odd that corsairs not able to be overclocked, its normally good overclocking ram, though I can't say the same for ASrock. You might try this Ram, its high performance and designed to overclock.

In theory, there is a lot of 2000 mhz ram on the support page. None of it patriot, but that doesnt necessary mean anything, just keep track of their notes

"Note3: Due to the configuration of CPU, the default speeds of DDR3 2400/2200/2000/1800 MHz will operate at DDR3 2133/2133/1866/1600 MHz.
Note4: The O.C. mode is not guaranteed. It depends on whole system configuration and other parameters.
Note5: For system stability, use more efficient memory cooling system to support a full memory load (4 DIMMs) when overclocking"

I know allot of mobo mention the memory configuration issue but for some reason the asrock ex4 doesnt mention that. Also I use the asrock easy OC in bios and set it to 4.6 I believe it sets the configurations for you

They dont always, but theyre important whether they list it or not. And with some combinations, the auto configs dont always work, sometimes you have to tweak them manually.

Actually, I think If I was you, I would go through their support list here and pick one off that list, it would likely give you the best chance of getting a working combination.

If your looking for best chance for it to work, I wouldnt choose any of those, none of them are on the recomended ram list from the manufacturer. I wouldnt even go with the Ram I initially recomended. I would go through that list I linked to, and find one of those models to use. On the other note, if we throw out the list, between those with personal experience, Patriot is the best overclocking in that list-with Muskin being the least likely to be overclocked. I like Muskin ram, but its not very good at overclocking from what Ive seen. G.Skills ok, but Patriot has a solid rep for being able to handle high overclocks. That being said, Id still stick with the support list supplied by ASRock for best results.
