question about RAM performance

I'm thinking about switching from DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) to DDR4-3000 (PC4-24000).

my motherboard is:

I've read the specifications for my mobo and it does support a memory speed of 3000, but i was wondering how it would affect my computer.

will this switch cause my CPU to run any slower?

  1. The mobo you linked accepts RAM up to 3466 Mhz speed, so it will accept 3000 without any problem. Note that any speed above 2133 requires to turn the XMP on in BIOS.

  2. On an Intel platform, the gains between 2666 and 3000MHz are likely to be negligible, outside of very specific workloads.

    No, increasing the speed of your RAM will not cause your CPU to run slower.
