According to Intel none of their cpu's can support ddr3 memory higher than 1600. My question is to determine if there is any reason to buy DDR3 memory higher than 1600.

Can you show me where you read this? I currently own a computer that disproves this. :p

I was told this information came directly from Intel.

1600 is the native DRAM freq supported by Haswell CPUs, it can easily run faster DRAM and Intel even certifies DRAM up through about 3000 and 1.65 voltage - ( ;)  they also say to use 1.5-1.575 voltage) - sort of contradictory huh? Anyway, Haswell K model can generally run through 2666, 4770Ks up to 3000+, IB K models 3570K gen about 2400, 3770Ks can hit 2666, SB a little less

So only the overclockedK's can utilize it, not a 3770?
