I've never seen Ballistix Sport 2400 do more than 2800 or so and some of the newer 2400 stuff won't even do 2666, but if the person selling the sticks is speaking of the specific examples you bought, then it may well be possible.

What tab in CPU-Z are you looking at?

I probably would use more than 1.35v on Micron ICs, though some benefit from up to 1.4. What's the vendor say?

Stressapptest from a portable Linux environment.

Depends on the clocks you are going for.

I normally run my older set of Ballistix Sport 2400 at 2667MT/s, 12-11-12-27-T1, 1.37v and my newer set at 2400MT/s, 11-13-12-28-T2, 1.33v. Very tight subtimings on the first set and modestly looser ones on the second.
