What is it mean in the specifications when RAM speed is mentioned?

in this link : Intel® Core

Does this mean that processor can only support a maximum of 1066MHz while talking to RAM and there would be no point in having 1333 Mhz RAM for such a processor?

The answer would be highly appreciated.

With the i7 CPU's the memory controller is on the CPU 1066 is the native speed, speeds above that are doable just considered overclocking.
So without overclocking, The CPU won't gain anything from having a 1333 Mhz. chipset instead of a 1066 Mhz. one ?

I do plan on building a server actually, But isn't overclocking like f**king your own hardware so it might die faster ?

OC'ing does put unnecessary stress on components and voids warranties. Simple solution, build with hardware that does what you want/need then there is no need to over stress any hardware with OC'ing.
