Question How do people get their memory sticks to run above the motherboard supported memory ?

I am interested in buying some very fast RAM, but the motherboards that I see only support up to 4400 Mhz Ram.

I've seen others on YouTube run Ram that's as fast as 4600 Mhz and get it to run on a board that says it only supports 4133 Mhz.

They're overclocking the RAM clock speeds but the board itself might not support those speeds, so it's running but not at a 1:1 ratio with the CPU. This can cause some latency issues. Anyway, unless you're a hardcore enthusiast (which given you don't know the answer to your question I take it you're not) doing this is not really practical nor cost effective. Anything above 4133MHz is difficult to configure and quite unstable if unchecked temp wise. Thus why this is for enthusiasts only. If you're just making a gaming PC and want good speeds, 3200 - 3600MHz kits are the best consumer level speeds.
