Crosshair V Formula

Hi,

I was just looking at Crosshair V Formula on ASUS website and i was curious how is that flagship model that was designed for FX AMD cpu
does not support 1866MHz memory as a default?

Quote: 4 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR3 2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 Hz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

Anything above 1600 is achived by overclocking whilst FX CPUs support memory working at 1866MHz...
How does it work?

If i got FX-8150 with this mainboard and used 1866MHz memory would that mainboard work with that RAM at 1866 or i would need to set it up manually in BIOS?

    but you will probably have to set the timings and voltage yourself
