Not because of the motherboard but because of the memory controller of the CPU. Officially the CPU support four dual rank modules at 1333MHz. The highest officially supported frequency is 1866MHz (two dual rank modules).

You should be able to reach 1600-1866MHz with four modules with some tinkering, however 2400MHz is not going to happen with four modules.
