Although you don't have to really 'overclock' anything, basically just have to manually set the RAM to run at 1866 MHz in BIOS.

Riider is correct, you should be able to use the first set you posted above (post #6), although the other two, being 1600 MHz, you would either have to run at 1333 MHz or overclock them to 1866 MHz (in this case it IS overclocking, as you are pushing the RAM beyond it's factory limits) which may or may not be possible, I'd have to do more research on your mobo.

Edit:
But yes, you should always be able to run RAM at a lower speed than it's factory default.

I see from your other post, you are confusing system RAM with video RAM. The memory on the video card has nothing to do with the memory your motherboard uses. Check out this site to see if you can run certain games on your system. If not, you need to upgrade what it suggests.

Where did you come up with those memory specs? According to the ASUS site:

"2 x DIMM, Max. 8GB, DDR3 1866(O.C.)/1333/1066 MHz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory Dual Channel Memory Architecture"

It appears you can run DDR3-1866, but you'll have to overclock to get it to run at the proper speed. And if you look at the memory support (QVL) list, they show compatible RAM up to DDR3-2933.
