Hard to say what the top end is. RAM ICs are speed binned. Different RAM models may also use different ICs. The high performing, high end ICs go on the higher end models, and lower performing, low end ICs go on the lower end models. However sometimes magic happens (like on the Samsung low voltage modules from last year) where the ICs being used were golden if you knew how to tweak them.

Don't begin by jumping from DDR3 1333Mhz to DDR3 1866Mhz. Take it one step at a time until the memory kit won't pass Memtest or you get blue screen errors at frequency using the stock voltage and timing.

At that point you can increase the 4 primary memory timings by 1 and also bump the DRAM voltage a tad. Retest. Adjust if needed. Retest and repeat process until no manner of "safe" DRAM voltage or messing with the timings will get you Memtest stable.
