Just curious, I've read a lot of builds and was wondering why people hasn't taken advantage of faster memory? I read where most people get DDR3 1600 MHz. I use 16GB G.Skill DDR3 PC3-19200 2400MHz Trident X Series CL10 which were a little expensive.

Just curious why not take advantage of the faster memory that can be used? Budgeting?

Assuming there's no overclocking, I'd say it's because the advantages/differences are negligible for many people. Having a higher amount of RAM is generally more beneficial than having slightly faster RAM anyway.
