Have you manually set the voltage and timings as well?

Can you use XMP Profiles on your board?

If you set it to the one available for 1866MHz it should work.

No, the profile will take care of all everything.

Ivy Bridge CPU´s operate ram at 1600mhz, so even if you have 1866 rams they may be fine but your cpu may just hit the wall, probably a bad IMC that cant handly it if it goes unstable.

I changed the profile to XMP and the ram shows 1866Mhz and all works fine..
