Memory speeds

I currently have a set of 2 4gb kingston beast series at 1866mhz i want to get another 2 4gb sticks to complete my rig but i have noticed that the 2133mhz is nearly 10 cheaper so i was wondering what would happen if i bought these instead of the 1866mhz...??? would i have problems or would they easily run at the speed of my ram now..??

Many thanks

You should be ok, as long as the voltages are the same, just make sure to set timings manually in the bios to the lower sets values.
Some mobos are pickier than others..

That is the timing at rated speed, it may run cl9 when set manually to the lower speed
