    Z170 DDR4 Speeds

    Hi,
    This question is surely covered many times already, but I did some research and couldn't find an answer.
    Anyway,
    I've got MVIII Gene, 6600K, SM951, GTX970, 2*8GB DDR4 3000
    First I used to run the Ram at "XMP" timings (3000 15 15 15 35), which worked well,
    Then I did read somewhere that settings over 2100 didn't help, so I scaled down to "Standard" (2133 15 15 15 35).
    And it worked well too, I didn't see any difference in every day situation.

    So...What's the actual status ?

    Very few programs take advantage of higher memory frequencies. But in general, it's hard to notice a different in performance in daily usage.

    Like Chino said, not much of a difference. It seems to give a very little enhancement on the processing side. Very fluctuating results when you search for it on the net.
    When I overclocked my RAM to 3000MHz I did get a very slight improvement on the CPU score in 3DMark, but could even get a drop on Total score or in Unigine Heaven.

    Here's how it looked for me on different settings:
