i3-8100 cpu to a 2666 RAM

Hi again, 

 

I just want to know if my cpu i3-8100 is compatible to my 2666 RAM? My mother board is Gigabyte z370 which it said it supports ram up to 2666, but my cpu only supports up to 2400. If I were to use these will it not cause any problem?

 

or should I buy for an i5 processor? I already have the i3 8100 though.

 

can anyone explain? @Spotty

It's fine. You'll just need to enable xmp in the bios for it to run at 2666mhz.

Enter the BIOS and look for the setting called XMP (eXtreme Memory Profile) and enable it. To enter the BIOS just tap the DEL key on your keyboard when you first turn on your computer before you see the windows logo.
