The time you'd really want RAM that fast is when your overclocking, and to overclock you'd want a big cooler that would probably get in the way of those giant heatsinks on the RAM.

Unless your using a liquid cooler.

I have two questions,
1. What happens when the CPU clock is lower than RAM clock?
2. Are there mobos any available in market who support these RAMs?

Why must they use that heatsink design? it makes the memory sticks higher than they need to be (with lots of empty wasted space)

this means those of us with large air coolers cannot use the memory + have a large heatsink for the CPU.

Latency is almost constant in terms of nanoseconds with modern DRAMs averaging around 6ns.

With some of the fastest RAM clocking 1600-8-8-8 (5ns), I would not be surprised if those DIMMs were timed something like 3000-16-16-16. (5.3ns)
