Nope, like DeXel said, just enable the XMP profile and you should be good to go. If you plan on overclocking you might want to do your initial overclocking with the RAM set at 1600, just to eliminate any possible issues, but once you get all set you can just switch over to 1866.

technicaly, the IMC only supports 1333 MHz according to intel spec. Anything past this is technically overclocking. you shouldn't have any problem running 1866 MHz as long as the kit you purchased supports that speed.

No he can't. That's why they're different sockets. They have different pin layout for a reason.

IMC on Ivy Bridge and Haswell supports native 1600Mhz.
