Ryzen overclock better with dual channel?

So I have a Ryzen 1600 right now I have it at 3.6Ghz and I have a 1x8gb stick of corsair vengeance lpx 2666 that I overclocked to 3000, would I have a better overclock if I got dual channel. I know that ryzen is sensitive to high frequency ram because of the infinity fabric but does that affect how far you can overclock.

Any potential difference in single channel and dual channel load on the IMC affecting overclock is offset by the performance gain of running dual channel. Dual channel still = better performance.

Sorry Im, still a little lost. So it does or doesn't affect the overclock?

You aren't getting lower frequencies by running single channel and a single DIMM, just less performance than if you ran dual channel.
