Which part of the setup dictates the max RAM clock (1600/1866 etc..)

All the mainstream mobo's seem to support up to 1600 Mhz... but is it purely the mobo that dictaces the speed?

Seems logical.. dont get me wrong, but why have 1866/2133 mhz etc.. if no mainstream board can handle it?

 

or am i looking wrong?

Most motherboards support at least 1866 mhz if you pay really low for it. At around $130 you get 2400 mhz support.

Actually most of the newer motherboards support that.

What dictates how fast you can run memory is the CPUs IMC. 

 

While the motherboard does help by in large it is based solely on the CPU itself.

 

The part were the motherboard helps is if it has the proper power phases for the CPU IMC and the ram slots but also the engineering that went into how the ram and CPU interact.
