Red face Mixing Ram - Compatible timing and speed

So it seems like no one really makes the 1800 mhz ram anymore. There are lots of 1866 mhz ram though. I currently have 4 x 2gb Patriot Viper II Sector 5 in my Sabertooth x58 mobo. I was thinking of adding 2 more ram chips, but the current ram I have was discontinued.

How will adding in 1866 ram with different timings affect the set up? If anyone can point me to some ram that would be compatible I would be forever grateful.

If you aren't overclocking it should run fine. But ram is cheap so it would be best just to buy matching kits.
