Can I put RAM clocked at 3 Ghz on a Motherboard that supports 2.1 GHz memories standard, but can OC up to 3.4 ghz ?

I was thinking of buying a Asus Z170-DELUXE mobo with with some Kingston memories.
The thing is, the memories are clocked at 3Ghz, while the motherboard's specifications for ram are as follows :
3466(OC)
3400(OC)
3333(OC)
3200(OC)
3300(OC)
3000(OC)
2800(OC)
2666(OC)
2400(OC)
2133

My question is, if I try to set the ram to its 3Ghz standard, will that automatically OC the processor or if I will have any other issues ?

    The memory clock speed does not overclock the processor.

    Most all Intel Z170 boards and 6th Gen Core ‘Skylake’ processors should be able to run DDR4 memory kits ranging in speed from 2133 MHz to 3200 MHz without issue.
