What's the point of selling these new high-speed >DDR3-2400 modules if, for example, the i7-4770k memory controller can only address speeds up to DDR3-1600? I seem to recall reading about this at one point in the past but I can't recall the answer.

You overclock the memory controller. I have a Sandy Bridge who's official rating is up to DDR3-1333, but it uses DDR3-1600 memory just fine.

Thank you for the explanation. It never occurred to me that you were overclocking the memory controller in the BIOS. I just assumed you were simply telling the BIOS exactly the speed of your RAM if it wasn't natively detecting it.

Well this is just a naive explanation. I don't really know what the motherboard is doing.
