So following question:
If a Mainboard officially Supports Memory at 2400MHz, 2667MHz, 2933MHz and 3200MHz, what should I be aware of if I decide to purchase a 3000MHz kit, due to availability and pricing?
 
DDR 3000 is basically 2933, just rounded up. If you put the 3000 kit in, it will most lielky run at the 2933 memory strap.

There is practically no difference between 2933/3000 in terms of performance. You won't lose anything by running them at 2933mhz.

I discovered after completing my build with 3200MHz Memory that my Motherboard only supports 3200MHz as OC. This caused my RAM to initially run only at 2667MHz, since that was the maximum supported value without an Overclock.
A couple of Youtube clips later I realized its the simplest fix on earth. You just enable X.M.P. in the Bios (literally just enable, not changing any numbers), save and exit and it overclocks the Memory Bus on the motherboard, allowing your RAM to run at full 3200MHz.
