Like bloody clockwork. Where exactly did the OP say he's shooting raw?

Anyway: Raw files get the equivalent of Low applied above ISO1600. Any other settings only affect JPEGs and the raw preview JPEG.
Did not say he did and you shouldn't assume things.

Since he indicated it was not seeming to make a difference, I pointed this out to him as a possible reason for him to check.

You're forgiven.

If you're shooting JPEG you can try this:
1. Use Custom High ISO NR
2. For ISO ranges 100-800 set to OFF
3. For ISO range 1600 set to LOW
4. For 3200 and above set to MEDIUM

It's been reported, and I've confirmed myself that having the above settings (or even turning off High ISO NR altogether) do improve JPEG image sharpness.
