Asus z170 pro motherboard vs Asus maximus VIII ranger!!

Hi Guys this is my first time building a PC!
The type of PC im building is both multi-tasking and gaming as im also a music editor and a gamer!
both the Asus z170 pro and the maximus Viii ranger are both around 550 price range as the asus z170 pro is 10$ more then maximus VIII ranger in my country.
the thing that caught my attention for the Asus z170 are its functions as it has more then the maximus, and a bit slight more better ( i guess).

im not so sure which motherboard i should go with please help?!

  1. Both are good mobos, might check if one has a feature you want that the other doesn't, otherwise will probably be happy with either ;)

    The thing that is holding me back is the memory Frequency as the Pro has 3866+ Mhz while the ranger is 3466+ Mhz
    I have a 16GB ddr4 2400MT/s ram.

    Either board can run from 2133 on up, 2400 would be fine, if thinking getting faster 3200 is about the sweet spot as far as price to performance (I use a lot of GSkill TridentZ and Ripjaws V sticks for my rig as well as client builds), going beyond that I generally can't justify the cost, for the gains achieved
