Default Compatibility DDR3/Core i7 920

Hi, Intel have said that core i7 (920 + 940) chips only support DDR3 800/1066 MHz memory but manufacturers have put kits on the market clocked at 1333/1600 MHz? Only the extreme edition of i7 can make use of 1600 MHz DDR3 or higher, which having said also has an unlocked multiplier which puts it at a big advantage for overclocking over its siblings?

My question is, if i were to get a 920 i7, and 1333Mhz triple channel memory, would my cpu make use of as much as it can (1066MHz) and 267MHz go to waste?

Cheers.
