Asus Crosshair IV Memory Corsair 1600 or 1866?

In the process of planning my Asus Crosshair IV based build, I discovered that Newegg sells the Corsair Dominator GT 1866 4gb kits for almost $40 less than the 1600 4gb kit

Would I run in to any compatibility issues with the 1866? I know the board supports it that speed, but all I can on google about it is the same guy asking the same question about the crosshair iv not posting with the 1866 kit, on multiple forums.

Also they have a 1600 4gb kit that is out of stock for only $20 more than the 1866 but is marketed in the description toward AM3 procs.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, Thanks :)

    Yes, it would be nice to save, however the CMT4GX3M2A1600C7 AND CMG4GX3M2B1600C7 are supported with your Asus Crosshair IV Formula from the list. :??:

    Also, Corsair is a very good choice so you're making a very good decision.

    Hopefully, this answers your question.
