DDR4-3000

If I buy 16GB (8X2) DDR4-3000 RAM and instal it on a DDR4-2133 / 2400 / 2666 / 2933 / 3200 motherboard will it cap off at 2933 or 3000? and if it caps off at 2933, how much slower is that then 3000 in terms of gaming. 

 

Thank you

I am unsure but there is no difference between 2933 or 3000

 

Just enable XMP and let the thing do its job

See if there's an XMP settings for 3000, if not you can set the timings and frequency manually.

so setting the XMP at 3000 RAM will let it run at its manufactured speed? so it wouldn't be overclocking the RAM but instead just allowing it to run its proper speed?

Yes that's what XMP does.
