DRAM today is not like DRAM of old, especially the higher freq, higher density sticks. Tolerences are very tight and though I've been able to OC just about every set of sticks of GSkill I've had, there have been some that just wouldn't go. That's one reason you are starting to see more sets at somewhat odd freqs i.e. 2600/2666. These days it seems to be best to go with what you'll want or higher, and then if say the CPU can't carry higher (and some 3770Ks can't carry higher than 2400, just like some 3570Ks can't even hit 2400) then you can downclock.
