No CPU can, that is purely for overclockers.

For example my memory is 1800mhz stuff, but my cpu only supports 1066 (stupid first gen i7's!), but ive got it OC'd now and the memory is running happily at 1780mhz Smile

refraction, remember to overclock your baseclock otherwise you won't be taking advantage of alot of the bandwidth. ;p, first gen i7's memory performance is directly linked to the QPI and Uncore clock rates.

also keep c-state tech enabled, you get a 4GB write bandwidth hit if you disable it :|

If your ram isn't designed for 2200 you probably shouldn't overclock it to those levels. When they say "overclock" they mean overclocking the timings on their motherboards to match the levels of the ram.
