is it safe to overclock 1666 ram to 1866?

Safe, as in it's not going to cause an atomic explosion - Yes.
Safe, as in will the computer still work (and reliably) - pretty much guaranteed No.
Overclocking is a gimmick and generally a waste of time, the bit of gain you may get is barely perceptible and just likely to cause erratic problems and disc corruption; unless it's some part of a technical competition using serious hardware (peltier cooling or even liquid nitrogen) and you don't mind destroying a lot of parts in the process.

Probably not. Your computer probably won't even boot up, and even if it does, you'll have glitches all over the place. It's also not good for the RAM chips.
