So I'm planning to buy a Ryzen 5 1600x for my PC, but the CPU says it supports RAM up to 2933MHz, and I plan to buy a set of 2 8GB sticks of Corsair Vengeance RAM.

My motherboard (msi X470 Gaming Plus) supports the RAM speed, if that is to be taken into consideration.
Should I seek out a set of RAM that clocks exactly at 2933MHz, or should I buy the 3000?


Thank you in advance!
