In its specifications it is listed that it supports DDR3-1866 memory

  1. Best answer
    That means that it supports system Ram of DDR3 up to 1866 speeds. Most people would stick with DDR3 1600 System Ram.

    Mactronix :)
  2. You can get different types of memory (RAM)

    For example, DDR, DDR2, DDR3, obviously this supports DDR3, the 1866 is just the speed of the RAM, I think the standard default of which RAM comes is @ 1600 (MHz), this supports RAM up to 1866MHz which is faster than the standard 1600MHz.

    It's backwards compatible ofcourse, so there's no problem with having anything under 1866MHz RAM
