The board will default 1333Mhz almost all the time on a new AMD build with no changes in BIOS. 1333Mhz is a easy fail safe boot on a new build. You have odd drop down options because your system is under or overclocked via the FSB. Make sure your FSB is 200Mhz to get an exact "1866mhz". If you start tinkering with FSB your RAM settings will change since they are tied together.
As for a guide I personally don't know a good one off the top of my head, a google search should yield some decent results. Just change any timings for your RAMs timing. I would assume most cheap ram kits these days will be 9-9-9-27-2T leave everything else auto unless you really want to fiddle.
