Memory support

I notice that alot of motherboards support up to say 1333mhz ddr3 but 2200mhz overclocked, how does this work? Is it beneficial to use faster ram than the non overclocked spec?

    The OC rating on the mobo is just the manufacturer saying that the mobo will support ram at speeds up to 2200 MHz (in this case). Most new cpus have an integrated memory controller meaning that the mem speed is based on the cpu, not the mobo. The only reason to get ram rated at a higher speed is if you want to OC, undervolt, or tighten the timings on the ram.
