AMD Site lists the foll memory specs:

 

Max System Memory Speed

2667MHz

System Memory Type

DDR4

Memory Channels

2

 

However Motherboard manufacturers such as Overview for X370 XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM | Motherboard - The world leader in motherboard design | MSI Global

Lists memory supported as :

  • Supports DDR4-3200+(OC) Memory

 

My question is should i buy only 2666 MHz since that is the max supported processor speed?

 

OR

 

Should i buy the 3000 MHz memory, how would i benefit ? does the FSB of the MB support a faster speed thereby faster operation even though the CPU max is 2666 ?

 

Thanks for your help.
