Ryzen 7 1700X RAM memory maximum speed

I bought a Ryzen 7 1700X in Amazon and I want to buy the RAM memory at the speed of 3,466 Mhz, is there any problem with this processor due to on AMD official site says the processor supports a maximum of 2,666 Mhz on the RAM speed?


Will I have a bottleneck speed because the memory runs at 3466 Mhz and the maximum speed supported by the processor is 2,666 Mhz? or do you recommend me to buy the 2,666 Mhz?


What do I have to do?


I guess with the 3,466 mhz that my motherboard supports it won't be any problem but what is wrong with the processor in this case?

Please help me out I will be waiting patiently. 


Best regards.
