Bragging rights.

2400 ram is kind of a gimmick.

Lost of companies are selling high speed ram with terrible timings. Only G skill trident ram has a low timing high speed ram kit available for ~110 bucks where as you can get 1600mhz ram for as little as 60 bucks. Sooooo it up to you.

You can always get cheap 2400mhz ram and try to lower the timings yourself.

Haswell Recommendations

For discrete GPU users, recommending any kit over another is a tough call. In light of daily workloads, a good DDR3-1866 C9 MHz kit will hit the curve on the right spot to remain cost effective. Users with a few extra dollars in their back pocket might look towards 2133 C9/2400 C10, which moves a little up the curve and has the potential should a game come out that is heavily memory dependent. Ultimately the same advice also applies to multi-GPU users as well as IGP: avoid 1600 MHz and below.

but i suggest reading the whole article:
Memory Scaling on Haswell CPU, IGP and dGPU: DDR3-1333 to DDR3-3000 Tested with G.Skill

EDIT:
notice that is all haswell platforms, when it comes to sandy/ivy the scaling steps down a notch and 1600 ram is fine but 1866 does have some increase with 2133 or above not being cost effective.

Final Words

I think we confirmed what we pretty much knew all along: Sandy Bridge's improved memory controller has all but eliminated the need for extreme memory bandwidth, at least for this architecture. It's only when you get down to DDR3-1333 that you see a minor performance penalty. The sweet spot appears to be at DDR3-1600, where you will see a minor performance increase over DDR3-1333 with only a slight increase in cost. The performance increase gained by going up to DDR3-1866 or DDR3-2133 isn't nearly as pronounced.
