I have http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
Processor: APU 5300

Gigabyte page say: Support for DDR3 1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz memory modules

But in my BIOS i found this max:

Then what is the real Maximum memory speed support?

The real maximum support is 2400MHz but your fsb maximum frequency is 1866MHz. So if you install a ram card with 2400MHz frequency it won't be beneficial, it will work like a 1866MHz card.
Also don't go for slow memory like 1333MHz as your processor uses the ram also as video memory it is always good to have greater speeds for video memory

Can work Kingston Predator 2400Mhz(CL11) ram at 1866Mhz and CL9 too?

I would personally run it at 2400 if it's stable.

You see XMP profiles in your bios? I would run it on profile 1.

Yes it can and I am sure that the SPD settings will be 1866MHz (CL9)
