TBH 1866 is all you need unless you have some special uses that require blistering Ram speeds and there are precious few of those most consumer would ever use..even 1600 is more then enough honestly. There are little gains to be had with the higher speeds and potentially higher costs associated with them if purchasing. In other words..

you be spending more $$ for almost no noticeable gains in performance. I used to be a rabid memory overclocker..these days..memory is more then fast enough for most common uses. The only rule i follow for Ram is don't ever buy cheap name brand well known and respected companies.

If 1866 is stable for you then stick with 1866 if you think it shows enough gains to justify the overclock. but make sure you see gains large enough since Oc'ing can introduce instability into a stable system sometimes.
