Is the motherboard the one in your signature?

The motherboard supports up 4200MHz, so in that respect you're totally fine. Your memory is certified to run at 3000MHz. The main concern would be the CPU as the memory controller is integrated onto the CPU, and when you overclock the memory, the controller runs at a higher frequency, so it may not support it. Worse case scenario though is that it doesn't work, but it probably will.

Nah it won't, memory sticks are really durable. That's the only component in your system that has lifetime warranty after all

so my cpu is safe or no? 8086k. losing cpu lifetime is worse than ram lifetime

It depends. Some games do get nice gains from RAM overclocks.

Nope, should be okay.
