Sorry but just Kingston HyperX 1866 memory is not enough information to give you an answer. There are many models of Kingston memory that is HyperX 1866.

We need the full model number to check. For example, this is one HyperX 1866 model number from your boards memory support list:

KHX16C9P1K2/16

Any memory speed above 1333 is considered an over clock on this board, so cannot be guaranteed to work. If the memory is compatible, it will at least work at a lower speed.

You really are serious about that OC thing, Tader!? Tongue
 
Once more, there is practically no reason for OC'ing the CPU-NB (>2200MHz) or Hyper-Transport (>2400MHz). Especially on that board, where you reported a too hot VRM heatsink yourself some time ago. To test if it is a hardware fault, why don't you reset your BIOS to default? It is very likely that your 400MHz OC of the CPU-NB crashes the games.
 
And for the modules, to know which are compatible, it is simple. Just read the QVL (Qualified Vendor List) of each mainboard before you buy them.
