I'm really sorry. My question should have been :
Does your CPU support 2666MHZ ram clock - at 3.70ghz CPU clock ?

No I wont look in the datasheet, its your computer and your needs of information, you need to make yourself sure about your setup and working conditions :)

Yes it does support that clock speed on the memory, but at which CPU clock speed ?
The CPU speed is closely related to the ram clock speed, so if you dont run the max CPU clock, where it supports the max ram clock speed, then what ... ?
