Hello VIP97,

 

 

I understand that you would like to know whether or not the memory over 1866Mhz will work properly with the processor.

 

 

Regarding this, the memory should work fine as long as it has the same voltage and it dos not exceed 32GB. Nevertheless,

 

the memory may actually be down-clocked to 1600Mhz or the memory controller will be overclocked to 1866Mhz. To avoid

 

any overclocking or problem when using the memory, I would highly recommend using the maximum supported memory,

 

this is to avoid any memory problem since I cannot guarantee 100% it will work with your system.

 

 

I hope this helps.
