  1. Couple of possibilites as to why your system crashes beyond 1333MHz.
    1). Your motherboard won't support RAM at speeds above 1333MHz.
    2). The RAM requires a higher voltage above 1333MHz, which the motherboard either cannot supply or has not been set to supply, I would suggest raising your DRAM voltage to 1.65V.
  2. I'm sure it does support 1866, it says Dual-channel DDR3 2000+/1866/1600/1333
    I'll try up the voltage then, thanks
