    RAM questions (DDR4)

    #1 - What does "higher" MHz in DDR4 actually do?
    What kinds of performance gains will you *actually* notice in high demanding games?

    #2 - I am running 4 sticks of G.SKill modules at the moment - tested "stock speed": 32000 MHz when in XMP.
    I am trying them out @ 35000Mhz right now. What is the max safe voltage I can use them together with the 8700K?

    If you want more specs on the RAM, just ask - just wondering what is generally safe to run with this system.
    It's new so I'm a bit afraid to take too much out of the corners.

    Just come out from a previous Haswell system (DDR3 and 4790K), so this is my first Coffee Lake experience (2 days now).
    CPU is running @ 5,1 GHz on all cores, if that will have some importance to processing my RAM while not drawing too
    much "current" - and therefore degrading the CPU just after a couple of years, even if it runs cool...
