How much does RAM even matter anymore.. at 3000 MHz+ the differences in performance is often 1-2 FPS, a second or 2 in blender. It seems to me it's more a question of looks and price. The days of gains from more expensive RAM is ancient history by now. Unless ur going for records it doesn't really become noticeable in daily use.

if you're comparing DDR4-2666 or slower, you can sometimes get 5-10% performance improvement depending on the application (for example 7zip).

As faster kits are becoming the standard for X570 and future platforms, these faster kits do make more of an impact and builders should lean to the faster kits (heck, even 3866 is within reason)
