Default Question about overclicking ram.

If I have a motherboard that supports up to pc 3200 memory and I overclock my ram to say 433 mhz will the motherboard recognize the change or can it not go past 400 mhz because the motherboard only supports up to 400 mhz speeds.

if you overclock the ram no matter what it will stay at the speed of the board like for example if you put a stick of 4400 in there with the same pin arcitecture it will work but it will run at the speed of the board.

Ok so even if my bios and other software such as cpuz says my memory is running at 433 mhz its actually not right?
