Solved

Will my mobo be able to utilize this RAM?

So I have the following motherboard - http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z170apro - and I'll also have an i5-6600. I'm not planning on overclocking either of these.

Will this ram be overkill (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f43200c16d16gvkb)? The newegg description for the mobo says that anything above 2400 mhz needs overclocking. Am I misreading something?

If I get the 3200 mhz version will it not be fully utilized?

This is the building I'm planning on having (obviously not both RAMs):

*** It has been brought to my attention that Neweggs description refers to ram cards that are OC'd not the mobo or cpu.
