    I have an intel G3258 CPU, a Z97 motherboard, and Kingston Savage 2400 Mhz RAM, the thing is i thought that the Intel G 3258 could only use up to 1333 Mhz RAM (mine should have been downclocked for example), from intel specs, but i seem to have them run just great at 1600 Mhz... I'm even more confused since i ended up looking at the Guru3D review of the Intel 3258G and i saw them with 2133 Mhz memory.... So... which is it ? Can i get them to work with higher frequency ram or not ?

    Yes, its an unlocked CPU. You should know that when you purchased it.
