I plan on building a a gaming system and getting 1866Mhz RAM for that system, im curious if i put that in my current system which is rated at 1066Mhz, will the Mobo or CPU not function properly due to this or will the RAM down clock to the speed that the mobo is rated at?

Computers only work as fast as their master clock. All parts inside a computer must work faster than that clock to be reliable. Using a part that is too fast will not change the speed only defined by its master clock.
