CPU and Ram compatibility Question

Hey, Im not a big PC expert but have a rather expensive system but in the end ive decided to back down on a good CPU when buying my PC. Now that i want to upgrade because i have a max 45% lowest 35% Bottleneck to my GPU. I noticed my Mainboard and Ram are outdaded for the AMD Ryzen 9 7950x3d that i was going to buy so I also had to buy a new Mainboard and Ram.

Now to the MAYBE problem that i noticed AFTER ordering and where i want to know if its a problem or it doesent matter.

My Mainboard Supports Ram up to 6000+ MHz so i didnt look long and bought 64GB of DDR5 Ram with 6000MHz.

But the AMD Ryzen 9 7950x3d if i looked correctly only supports up to 5200 MHz.

So my question is, Is it a problem that My RAM has more MHz than the CPU supports or am i just worrying to much?


Thanks for any answer
