Every motherboard has a max ram speed listed in it's specs. You use the Max ram speed, not the speed the CPU can use.

Yes, in fact you can buy even faster memory, it will just throttle back to the max speed of the motherboard.

This can be a good strategy so that if you buy a motherboard in the future that will support faster RAM you won't need to re-buy it.
