Default Think i made a big mistake, help please

Hi guys, just ordered all my components and they come tomorrow. Anyway today i realized that the motherboard i have says it only supports 1066Mhz, 1333Mhz and 1866Mhz ddr3 memory, and the RAM i have bought is 1600Mhz . Anyway i was wondering if theres any hope of the RAM still working on the mobo, heres what i have:

Mobo
Scan.co.uk: Asus M4A88T-M AMD 880G AM3 Motherboard

RAM
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/4gb-(...24-dhx-18v(amd)

Thanks in advance,
Chillstalker

The link to the RAM doesn't work. That mobo will work with 1600MHz memory. When it says 1866MHz(OC), that means it will support speeds up to 1866MHz when overclocking.
