Question How Safe Is To Keep 2666MHz RAM Modules Running At 3200MHz?

Since the i5-11400 supports it, I went into my mobo's UEFI and bumped the DRAM frequency from the standard 2666MHz to 3200MHz..

The machine booted up fine and is, up until now, working fine.
No crashes, no weird behaviors...

I know it's just a 534MHz boost... but I thought why not?

Can I keep them running like this?

You need to run Prime95 and use the 'Blend' Torture Test, then you will know if it is stable.
Since it can be working fine on the desktop but the moment you start doing anything intensive on your PC it could bluescreen.
